RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, since the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and could change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you obtain a VPS server through our company, you shall have a set amount of RAM available at all times. We set up the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned permanently to it based on the exact features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its system resources to one that needs more resources, so you will be able to use the characteristics of your plan at their full capacity at any time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it comes with a sufficient amount of memory to permit all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a potent web hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you buy one of the dedicated servers we provide you with, you shall have a large amount of physical memory available constantly. You will be able to see the hardware configuration at any time via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks diligently as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any web server, so in case you order one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality web server that will ensure fantastic general performance for your sites. Even in case you don't use the full capacity of the web server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server only.
