RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, as the information 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 apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you opt to host your websites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you buy one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we provide, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks thoroughly as well as all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any server, so in case you purchase one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality web server which will ensure outstanding overall performance for your websites. Even if you don't use the whole capacity of the server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server exclusively.
