RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much faster than a hard disk, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with every VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even if you do not use all of it for a long length of time. Every single VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to make sure that it won't run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available at all times, so even in times where you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
