RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk drive, simply because the data 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 programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to check out your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the info is lost as soon as 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 could change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each VPS server we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even if you don't use all of it for a long stretch of time. Every VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to make sure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server solutions come with a massive amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run extremely heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we install a new web server to ensure that there will never be any problems of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we find out that you aren't using the whole capacity of the server, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be available will always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
