RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a certain server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

The physical memory which you will get with every single virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal at all times even if you don't use the whole thing for a long length of time. Each VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we provide is big enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and all other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
