RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, because the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and could change according to what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you opt to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful web hosting solution for your websites and programs and you purchase one of the dedicated servers that we provide, you will have a substantial amount of physical memory available at all times. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration at any time from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks comprehensively alongside all of the other parts before we use them to put together any machine, so if you purchase one of our plans, you will get a high-quality hosting server which will ensure superb overall performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your machine only.
