RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed faster than a hard drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory that you will get with every virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be at your disposal at all times even when you do not use it for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from other accounts on the physical server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not 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, to make sure that it will never run out of memory. In this way, there shall 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

The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server that we provide is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your sites and all other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are tested before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly performing machine that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
