RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to look through your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and can change according to what the some other clients on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

When you decide to host your sites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your current account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with only a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.

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 really resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and all other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly operating machine that will ensure the best possible general performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
