RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a certain web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server packages come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even in case you use only a fraction of the resources which your package deal features, we shall never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical server. As we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to secure the appropriate functioning of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we make sure that your sites will operate properly all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need an effective web hosting solution for your sites and applications and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we provide you with, you will have a great deal of physical memory available all the time. You'll be able to see the hardware configuration anytime via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks diligently as well as all of the other parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so in case you get one of our plans, you will get a high-quality server that will guarantee fantastic overall performance for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the total capacity of the machine for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your machine only.
