RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, since it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a given server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with every VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even when you do not use all of it for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server plans feature a great deal of physical memory, which will enable you to run incredibly heavy web applications with no challenges. We use brand new and meticulously tested hardware components when we build a new web server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we will make certain that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we notice that you are not using the entire capacity of the machine, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be available shall always be the same. You are able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
