RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed considerably quicker than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to surf your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All of our virtual private server packages feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even if you use only a fraction of the resources which your package deal offers, we shall never allot the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical web server. Because we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the correct functioning of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. In the event you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make certain that your web sites will operate effectively all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server which we supply is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your sites and any software which you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are tested before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly performing server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
