RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a certain web server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server packages include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use a small fraction of the system resources your package includes, we will not assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical server. As we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to secure the appropriate functioning of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. In case you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. That way, we make certain that your web sites will function correctly all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server packages feature a large amount of physical memory, that will permit you to run extremely heavy web applications with no problems. We use brand-new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new server to make sure that there will never be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we notice that you're not using the total capacity of the web server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
