RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time an application is started, it is stored inside the RAM, as it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a certain web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server packages feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even in case you use only a small fraction of the system resources that your package includes, we will never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical web server. Since we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to ensure the appropriate performance of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. Thus, we ensure that your websites will function correctly all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server solutions include a great deal of physical memory, that'll allow you to run really heavy web apps without any challenges. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new server to guarantee that there will never be any issues of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we discover that you're not using the full capacity of the server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can easily look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
