RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed faster than a disk drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to check out your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and might change according to what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a given time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server solutions come with a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources your package comes with, we will never allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical web server. Since we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to secure the proper performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some time. When you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make certain that your Internet sites will perform correctly at all times regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server which we offer you is big enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your websites and any software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
