RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk 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 when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to surf your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the info is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed 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
If you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we'll never allocate the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with simply a couple of clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you purchase one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all the time, so even in times where you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
