RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, as it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even if it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with each VPS server that we offer you is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal at all times even when you do not use it for a long length of time. Every VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, to ensure that it won't ever run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your websites and any other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly working web server that can guarantee the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
