RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Whenever a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a given hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All of our virtual private server packages come with a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use just a small fraction of the system resources that your plan includes, we'll never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical server. Due to the fact that we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to ensure the adequate overall performance of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably eventually. When you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we guarantee that your sites will perform effectively at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all of the time, so even in times where you utilize just a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing CP.
