RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed 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 check out your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

When you opt to host your sites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with only a couple of clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server we provide is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and any other software which you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly functioning server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
