RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Whenever an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a particular server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other customers even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even in case you use only a small fraction of the system resources your package includes, we will not allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Due to the fact that we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to secure the proper overall performance of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. If you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make certain that your web sites will function adequately constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in times in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing Control Panel.
