RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Each time an application is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a particular server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each VPS server we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available always even if you do not use the whole thing for a long length of time. Each VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never allot some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to make sure that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical web server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server which we provide is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your websites and every other software you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly functioning machine that can guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
