RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk drive, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and might change based on what the other customers on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

If you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your existing account completely. You will be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a potent web hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you buy one of the Linux dedicated web hosting which we provide, you will have a substantial amount of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks extensively as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so in case you get one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality web server which will guarantee remarkable overall performance for your websites. Even in case you do not use the full capacity of the web server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server only.
