RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed considerably faster than a disk drive, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you shall be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to explore your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and could change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each and every VPS server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even when you don't use it for a long time period. Every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from the rest of the accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server that we supply is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are examined before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working hosting server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
