RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the info 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 applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to check out your Internet 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 data is lost the moment 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 based upon what the some other clients on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory you will get with each and every virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and shall be available at all times even when you do not use it for a long period of time. Each VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

When you purchase one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available at all times, so even in times where you use only a part of it for a period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
