RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a 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 programs you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, as the info is lost the moment 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 can change based upon what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server plans include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even when you use only a fraction of the system resources that your plan comes with, we'll never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. As we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to secure the correct overall performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. In the event you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. In this way, we guarantee that your sites will function correctly all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation where you utilize merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing CP.
