RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a particular server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All our virtual private server plans come with a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use just a small fraction of the system resources that your package deal features, we'll never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. Due to the fact that we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to ensure the correct overall performance of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly eventually. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the active one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make certain that your sites will perform correctly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server we offer is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly performing hosting server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
