RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a given web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a given account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All our virtual private server plans come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use just a fraction of the resources that your package features, we'll never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. As we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to ensure the correct overall performance of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some point. When you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we ensure that your web sites will perform effectively all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation where you utilize just a part of it for any period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
