RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Each time an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All of our virtual private server packages feature a set amount of RAM. In other words, even when you use just a fraction of the system resources your package comes with, we will not allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical hosting server. As we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to guarantee the proper performance of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some point. When you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make certain that your websites will operate correctly all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

When you need a highly effective website hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you get one of the dedicated web hosting we provide you with, you shall have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration at any time from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks thoroughly along with all of the other parts before we use them to build any web server, so in case you purchase one of our packages, you'll get a high-quality server which will ensure excellent performance for your sites. Even when you do not use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your machine only.
