RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the data is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and might change depending on what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server solutions include a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use just a small fraction of the system resources that your package comes with, we shall never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the proper functioning of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. If you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the active one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. That way, we ensure that your web sites will function effectively all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server which we offer is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are tested before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly operating server that will ensure the best possible performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
