RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime an app is started, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a particular hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with every single VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and will be at your disposal consistently even if you do not use the whole thing for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from the rest of the accounts on the physical web server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, to ensure that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all of the time, so even in times where you use only a part of it for any period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing CP.
