RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to explore your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and can change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages include a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use only a small fraction of the system resources that your package comes with, we will never allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical server. Because we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the appropriate performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. If you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make sure that your websites will function effectively all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in times where you employ just a part of it for any given period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
