RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much faster than a hard disk, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting 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 all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, as the information 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 may change based on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll 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

When you decide to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your existing account completely. You will be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we offer is large enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your websites and every other software you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly performing machine that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
