RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Whenever a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a given server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All of our virtual private server plans come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use just a small fraction of the system resources that your package features, we will not allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical server. Due to the fact that we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to guarantee the adequate performance of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. If you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we guarantee that your web sites will function adequately all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you employ merely a part of it for any given period of time, we won't change the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing Control Panel.
