RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Whenever an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a particular hosting server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server plans feature a set amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources your package features, we will not allot the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Since we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to guarantee the appropriate overall performance of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially eventually. When you also decide to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. That way, we guarantee that your sites will perform effectively all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available all the time, so even in times in which you utilize just a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
