RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Whenever an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a particular web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with each VPS server we offer is guaranteed and shall be available consistently even if you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Each VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, to make sure that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there'll always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server that we offer is sufficient enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your sites and every other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly operating server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
