RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a given server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with every VPS server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be available at all times even when you don't use it for a long period of time. Every single VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to ensure that it won't run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need an effective hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you buy one of the dedicated service that we provide you with, you shall have a large amount of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks thoroughly alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any hosting server, so when you get one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality web server that'll ensure fantastic overall performance for your sites. Even if you don't use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
