RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you shall be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All of our virtual private server packages include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even when you use only a tiny fraction of the resources your package deal includes, we will never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. Because we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to secure the appropriate functioning of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. In the event you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we guarantee that your sites will function correctly at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server that we supply is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your sites and all other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly performing server that can ensure the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
