RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed faster than a disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and could change depending on what the other customers on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages come with a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even in case you use just a tiny fraction of the resources that your plan includes, we will never allot the free resources to another VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Since we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to ensure the proper operation of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly eventually. In case you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. In this way, we make certain that your Internet sites will perform effectively constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
