RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a certain hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and will be available always even when you do not use all of it for a long period of time. Every single VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to guarantee that it won't ever 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 Web Hosting

All of our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, that'll allow you to run rather heavy web applications with no problems. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to guarantee that there will never be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we will make certain that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we identify that you aren't using the total capacity of the machine, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be readily available will always be the same. You are able to take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
