RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Anytime an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a particular web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a given account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory that you will get with each virtual private server we provide is guaranteed and will be available consistently even when you don't use the whole thing for a long period of time. Every single VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, 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 created on it, so as to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. Thus, 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 Hosting

All our dedicated server plans include a great deal of physical memory, that'll allow you to run incredibly heavy web apps with no challenges. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new server to ensure that there will never be any issues of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we notice that you aren't using the whole capacity of the machine, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be available shall always be the same. You can look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
