RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, because the information 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 programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to surf your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, because the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and could change based upon what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory which you will get with every virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and will be available at all times even when you do not use it for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, as a way to ensure that it will never run out of memory. That way, there'll always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you purchase one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. As we test each hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation where you use only a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
