RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a particular web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even if it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even if you do not use the whole thing for a long stretch of time. Every single VPS account offers you fixed 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 will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally 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 won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server we provide is big enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your websites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are tested before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will ensure the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
