RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a hard drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, since the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change based upon what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even when you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we shall not 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 shall be added to your account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just a few clicks in the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server that we offer is large enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and any software you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly performing web server that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
