RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a particular hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other customers even if it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All of our virtual private server packages feature a set amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use just a fraction of the system resources which your package offers, we will not allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Due to the fact that we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to secure the appropriate performance of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. If you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we ensure that your web sites will operate adequately at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server which we supply is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and any software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly performing server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
