RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster than a hard disk drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, because the information is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and could change based on what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you shall have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we'll never allot the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the web server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all the time, so even in times in which you utilize just a part of it for a period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
