RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the info is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and might change based upon what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by others even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at some point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server that we offer you is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your websites and all other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly operating machine that can ensure the best possible general performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
