RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed considerably faster than a hard disk, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to check out your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and may change based on what the other customers on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are examined before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly functioning machine that can guarantee the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
