RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much quicker than a hard disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost when the power is shut off. When 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 hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server from us, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal always. We create the VPS accounts on highly effective hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned completely to it as per the specific features of the specific package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its system resources to one that needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your package at their full capacity all of the time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it provides a sufficient amount of memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM which their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available constantly, so even in times where you utilize just a part of it for any period of time, we will never alter the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
