RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate at the same time on a certain server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory you will get with each and every virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be at your disposal at all times even if you don't use all of it for a long time period. Each VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to ensure that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we offer you is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and any other software that you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are tested before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly functioning web server that can guarantee the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
