RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, because the information is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and might change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by others even if you do not use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you decide to host your sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with several clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you utilize just a part of it for any period of time, we won't change the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing Control Panel.
