RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk drive, because the information 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 apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

The physical memory you will get with each virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and will be at your disposal constantly even if you don't use the whole thing for a long period of time. Each VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we supply is large enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your sites and every other software which you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly functioning hosting server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
