RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much quicker than a hard disk, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, as the data 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 might change depending on what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use only a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your existing account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test every hardware component before we use it when we construct a hosting server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you employ only a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
