RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime an application is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a given web server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server plans come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use only a small fraction of the system resources which your package comes with, we will not allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Due to the fact that we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to ensure the proper overall performance of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. In the event you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we ensure that your Internet sites will operate correctly at all times regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you utilize merely a part of it for any period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing Control Panel.
