RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and might change based upon what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use only a small fraction of the resources your plan offers, we'll never allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical hosting server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate overall performance of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some time. In case you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. In this way, we guarantee that your websites will operate effectively at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server packages feature a large amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run really heavy web applications without any challenges. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to guarantee that there won't be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we discover that you're not using the whole capacity of the web server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be at your disposal shall always be the same. You will be able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
