RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info 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 can use, the more programs you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to browse your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from 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 your scripts can use may be limited and can change according to what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with every single VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available always even if you do not use it for a long time period. Each and every VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to make sure that it won't run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server packages come with a great deal of physical memory, which will enable you to run very heavy web applications without any problems. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to ensure that there will not be any issues of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we identify that you're not using the total capacity of the machine, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You will be able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
