RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a certain hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available always even if you don't use it for a long period of time. Every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to make sure that it will never run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available constantly, so even in a situation where you utilize only a part of it for any period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
