RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a given web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server plans include a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even if you use just a tiny fraction of the resources that your plan includes, we shall never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to guarantee the adequate operation of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. If you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to add just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. Thus, we ensure that your web sites will perform effectively all of the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a potent hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans we provide, you shall have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You'll be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks extensively alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so when you buy one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality web server that will ensure superb efficiency for your Internet sites. Even when you don't use the total capacity of the machine for an extended amount of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your server only.
