RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, since it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run all at once on a particular web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other clients even when it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server we provide is guaranteed and will be at your disposal constantly even if you do not use the whole thing for a long stretch of time. Every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot 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, in order to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you utilize only a part of it for any period of time, we won't change the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
