RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a certain hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a certain account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other clients even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with each VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even when you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Every single VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation where you utilize merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
