RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much faster than a hard drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to explore your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, because the data is lost as soon as 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 based on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server that we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even when you do not use it for a long time period. Every VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to ensure that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you employ merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will never change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
