RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much faster than a disk drive, simply because 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 once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you will be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to surf your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, because the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and may change according to what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with each and every VPS server we offer is guaranteed and shall be available all of the time even when you don't use it all for a long period of time. Every VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server that we offer is big enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your sites and every other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly performing web server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
