RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a 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 shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, since the info is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and may change based on what the some other clients on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with each VPS server we offer is guaranteed and will be available constantly even if you do not use the whole thing for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to make sure that it will never run out of memory. That way, there shall always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a hosting server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you utilize just a part of it for a period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing CP.
