RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime an app is started, it is stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a certain hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All of our virtual private server plans feature a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even when you use only a tiny fraction of the resources your package deal comes with, we will not allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical web server. Since we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the proper performance of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. If you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the active one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. This way, we make sure that your websites will operate correctly at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the machine works flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available constantly, so even in times where you use merely a part of it for any period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing Control Panel.
