RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a certain server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory you will get with every single virtual private server we offer is guaranteed and shall be available consistently even when 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 all the other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. Thus, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical machine.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

All our dedicated server packages come with a large amount of physical memory, that'll allow you to run incredibly heavy web applications with no issues. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new server to ensure that there will not be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have chosen. Even if we find out that you aren't using the whole capacity of the machine, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be available will always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
