RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to explore your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, since the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and might change based on what the other customers on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with simply a few mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a potent website hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you obtain one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You will be able to see the hardware configuration whenever you want from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks diligently along with all the other parts before we use them to assemble any server, so when you buy one of our packages, you'll get a high-quality server that will ensure exceptional performance for your sites. Even if you don't use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
