RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and may change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you shall have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions include a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use just a small fraction of the resources your package features, we shall never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Because we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to secure the correct functioning of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously eventually. In case you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to add just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. That way, we guarantee that your websites will perform effectively all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need an effective web hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans we offer you, you shall have a substantial amount of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks meticulously alongside all of the other parts before we use them to put together any server, so if you get one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality hosting server which will guarantee fantastic performance for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
