RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, simply because 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 programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to browse your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and might change according to what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you shall have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server which we offer you is guaranteed and shall be available all of the time even when you don't use all of it for a long time period. Each and every VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and all other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are tested before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly working hosting server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
