RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Each time an application is started, it's stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a given web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All of our virtual private server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even in case you use just a small fraction of the system resources that your package features, we'll never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical server. Due to the fact that we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to ensure the correct performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously eventually. In the event you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the latest one and to add just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. That way, we make certain that your web sites will function properly all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available at all times, so even in times in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
