RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much faster than a hard disk drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a 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 will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the information 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 may change according to what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server solutions include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even if you use just a fraction of the system resources which your plan features, we'll never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. As we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to secure the adequate overall performance of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically eventually. In the event you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the present one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make certain that your web sites will perform correctly all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server which we provide is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your sites and all other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly performing web server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
