RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed way quicker than a hard disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and may change based on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with each VPS server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even when you don't use all of it for a long time period. Each VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to make sure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all the time, so even in times where you employ only a part of it for a period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
