RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed way quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to explore your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, as the data is lost when 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 based upon what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide 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 all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks in the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation where you utilize merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing CP.
