RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed much faster than a hard drive, simply because 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 when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to browse your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, since the information 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 might change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

If you opt to host your sites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with only several mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you need a potent hosting solution for your websites and applications and you get one of the dedicated web hosting we offer, you shall have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks meticulously along with the rest of the parts before we use them to assemble any server, so if you get one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that'll guarantee outstanding overall performance for your sites. Even when you don't use the entire capacity of the hosting server for an extended time period, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
