RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, as 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 after 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 shall be able to explore your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, because the info is lost as soon as 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 could change depending on what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks in the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server packages include a massive amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run really heavy web apps without any issues. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new server to make certain that there won't be any problems of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you buy a dedicated server, we will make certain that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we notice that you aren't using the full capacity of the hosting server, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be available shall always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
