RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much quicker than a hard drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to explore your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from 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 your scripts may use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with each and every VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal all of the time even when you don't use all of it for a long time period. Each and every VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to make sure that it won't run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Since we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you employ merely a part of it for a period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
