RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored in the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use a tiny fraction of the system resources that your plan offers, we shall never allot the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate operation of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. In the event you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. That way, we ensure that your sites will operate correctly all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your sites and programs and you buy one of the dedicated service we offer you, you'll have a massive amount of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks diligently along with the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any web server, so if you order one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality server which will guarantee exceptional performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the machine for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your hosting server only.
