RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, simply because 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 programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you will 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 overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even when you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with every VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and will be at your disposal all of the time even when you do not use it all for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to ensure that it won't run out of memory. That way, there shall always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server which we supply is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your sites and any software that you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are tested before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly working machine that can guarantee the best possible performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
