RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a particular web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory that you will get with each VPS server that we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available at all times even if you do not use it all for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to make sure that it will never run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server solutions come with a great deal of physical memory, that will permit you to run really heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we build a new server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we identify that you're not using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be readily available shall always be the same. You may check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
