RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably quicker than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to surf your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the information 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 could change based on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and will be available constantly even if you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Every single VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to make sure that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we offer you is big enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and any software that you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly functioning server that can ensure the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
