RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Whenever a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a particular server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each and every VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and shall be available all of the time even if you do not use it all for a long stretch of time. Every VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, as a way to make sure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software that you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly performing hosting server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
