RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much faster than a hard drive, due to the fact that the information 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 programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, as the information is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with every VPS server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be at your disposal all of the time even when you do not use the whole thing for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to ensure that it will not run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server which we provide is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your sites and any other software which you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly operating web server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
