RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, 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 apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to 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. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and could change based upon 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 which will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

When you choose to host your sites on a virtual private server purchased from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with only several mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make certain that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the web server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available at all times, so even in times in which you use only a part of it for any period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
