RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to surf your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, as the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and could change based upon what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

If you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your current account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with several clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you use only a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
