RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a hard drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you shall be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to look through your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and can change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you opt to host your 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 created on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with just a few clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server we offer you is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly functioning server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
