RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, because it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a certain hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each VPS server we provide is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal all of the time even when you don't use all of it for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to make sure that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, that'll enable you to run very heavy web applications without any problems. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new server to make sure that there will not be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have selected. Even if we discover that you are not using the entire capacity of the machine, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
