RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data 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 applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, as the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and might change according to what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by others even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even if you use a tiny fraction of the system resources that your plan offers, we will never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Since we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to guarantee the correct overall performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably eventually. In case you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the latest one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. Thus, we make sure that your websites will function effectively all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we will never change the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
