RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a certain web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each and every VPS server that we offer is guaranteed and will be at your disposal constantly even if you do not use the whole thing for a long stretch of time. Each VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to make sure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful hosting solution for your sites and applications and you buy one of the dedicated servers which we offer, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration anytime via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks thoroughly alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any web server, so if you order one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality hosting server that'll ensure excellent general performance for your sites. Even if you don't use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server only.
