RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to check out your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, because the data is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources that your plan features, we will never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Since we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the proper operation of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. When you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the latest one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make sure that your web sites will perform correctly all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server which we provide is large enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are examined before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly operating machine that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
