RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and might change according to what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
When you decide to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with several clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
All our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, that will enable you to run rather heavy web applications without any challenges. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make certain that there will never be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you purchase a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have selected. Even if we notice that you are not using the entire capacity of the web server, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be readily available will always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
