RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much quicker than a hard disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to check out your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, since the info is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change depending on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks in the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you need an effective web hosting solution for your websites and programs and you purchase one of the dedicated servers hosting packages that we provide you with, you'll have a massive amount of physical memory available all the time. You will be able to check out the hardware configuration whenever you want through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks extensively alongside all the other parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so when you buy one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality hosting server that'll guarantee excellent performance for your websites. Even in case you do not use the full capacity of the server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
