RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a hard drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to surf your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, as the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and might change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server which we offer you is guaranteed and will be at your disposal at all times even when you do not use it for a long period of time. Every single VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to ensure that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server we offer you is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your sites and any software you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly performing web server that can ensure the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
