RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, as the info 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 applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to look through your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case 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 hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each VPS server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal always even if you do not use it for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we offer you is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your websites and any other software you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are examined before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly working web server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
