RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed faster than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to browse your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

All of our virtual private server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even when you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources that your plan comes with, we shall never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. Since we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to secure the appropriate overall performance of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. In the event you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to add just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. Thus, we ensure that your web sites will operate correctly at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a hosting server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you employ just a part of it for any period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
