RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed faster than a disk drive, simply because 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 applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet 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, since the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even if you do not use it for a long length of time. Each VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to ensure that it won't run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server that we offer is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your websites and any software that you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly performing server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
