RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate simultaneously on a particular web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with every single VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be available all of the time even if you don't use it for a long period of time. Every VPS account offers 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 not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to ensure that it will never 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 hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, that'll enable you to run really heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new web server to ensure that there will never be any issues of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we find out that you are not using the full capacity of the hosting server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be available will always be the same. You may look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
