RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Each time an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, as it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a given web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory which you will get with each virtual private server we provide is guaranteed and shall be available always even if you do not use it for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. That way, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we offer is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly performing machine that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
