RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the data 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 apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to surf your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, because the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and may change according to what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans feature a set amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even in case you use just a tiny fraction of the resources that your package offers, we will not allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Since we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to secure the adequate operation of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some time. When you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we ensure that your Internet sites will function correctly at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server we offer you is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
