RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a particular hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allotted to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even in case you use a fraction of the resources that your plan offers, we shall never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical web server. Because we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to secure the proper functioning of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some point. In case you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we ensure that your websites will perform correctly at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server packages come with a great deal of physical memory, that will enable you to run really heavy web apps without any issues. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new server to guarantee that there will never be any complications of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you order a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration you have chosen. Even if we notice that you're not using the total capacity of the server, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be at your disposal will always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
