RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications 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 will be able to explore your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and could change depending on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by others even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with every single VPS server which we offer you is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even when you don't use it for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly performing web server that will ensure the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed along with the full server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
