RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is started, it's stored inside the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a certain web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory you will get with every single virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be available always even if you don't use it all for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from the rest of the accounts on the physical server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to ensure that it won't run out of memory. That way, there'll always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you buy one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you employ merely a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
