RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored in the RAM, as it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a given hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is allocated to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server plans include a set amount of RAM. In other words, even in case you use a tiny fraction of the system resources which your plan features, we will never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Due to the fact that we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to guarantee the appropriate operation of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some time. If you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. That way, we make certain that your web sites will operate properly all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in times in which you utilize only a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
