RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Each time an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a given web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even if it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans feature a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use a small fraction of the system resources your plan comes with, we'll never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. Due to the fact that we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to ensure the appropriate functioning of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some point. In the event you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. Thus, we make certain that your sites will operate adequately constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful hosting solution for your sites and programs and you obtain one of the dedicated service which we offer you, you will have a substantial amount of physical memory available all of the time. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration whenever you want from your billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks comprehensively alongside all the other parts before we use them to assemble any server, so if you purchase one of our plans, you will get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure remarkable overall performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you do not use the total capacity of the machine for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server only.
