RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost when 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 might change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

If you decide 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 shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with a few clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all the time, so even in times in which you utilize merely a part of it for any given period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
