RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much faster than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, because the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with every VPS server that we provide is guaranteed and will be at your disposal constantly even when you don't use the whole thing for a long period of time. Each VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, as a way to ensure 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 operation of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server packages feature a large amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run extremely heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make sure that there won't be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we determine that you are not using the entire capacity of the server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be readily available will always be the same. You are able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
