RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other clients even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with every VPS server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available always even when you do not use it for a long time period. Every VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allot some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, as a way to make sure that it won't run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server plans come with a great deal of physical memory, that will allow you to run incredibly heavy web apps with no problems. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new server to guarantee that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you buy a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we determine that you aren't using the whole capacity of the server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You may check out the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
