RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a given server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even when you use a tiny fraction of the resources your package deal includes, we'll never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical server. Due to the fact that we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate functioning of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some point. In case you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make certain that your web sites will perform correctly all of the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available constantly, so even in times in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
