RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server plans feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even when you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources your package includes, we'll never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. Because we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to ensure the proper operation of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. When you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the active one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we make certain that your websites will operate correctly at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need a powerful web hosting solution for your sites and programs and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we offer you, you'll have a substantial amount of physical memory available all of the time. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks extensively alongside all the other parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so if you purchase one of our packages, you will get a high-quality hosting server that will guarantee exceptional overall performance for your websites. Even when you don't use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server only.
