RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed faster than a hard disk drive, 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 applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, since the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and may change based on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you opt to host your sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we'll never allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a few mouse clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans feature a massive amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run incredibly heavy web apps with no challenges. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we install a new server to make sure that there will never be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we identify that you are not using the whole capacity of the server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be available shall always be the same. You may check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
