RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information 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 programs you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to look through your websites without 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 when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and can change based upon what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All of our virtual private server plans include a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even when you use only a small fraction of the resources your package deal offers, we will not allot the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to ensure the appropriate functioning of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. That way, we ensure that your web sites will operate effectively constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation in which you use only a part of it for a period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing CP.
