RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to surf your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, as the info 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 can change depending on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory which you will get with every virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be available always even if you do not use it all for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, to ensure that it won't run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available at all times, so even in times where you use only a part of it for any given period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
