RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much faster than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a 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 programs you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change based on what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages include a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources your plan comes with, we will never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate performance of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably eventually. In case you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. This way, we guarantee that your sites will operate correctly all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans feature a massive amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run rather heavy web apps without any problems. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we build a new web server to ensure that there will not be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we identify that you are not using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You are able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
