RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a certain account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even if you don't use it for a long stretch of time. Each VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation where you employ only a part of it for a period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
