RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, since it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a certain server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a certain account may be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All of our VPS server plans include a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use only a fraction of the resources which your plan includes, we shall never assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. As we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to guarantee the adequate performance of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. When you also decide to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. Thus, we make sure that your sites will function effectively all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server plans feature a large amount of physical memory, that will enable you to run rather heavy web apps without any problems. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new web server to ensure that there won't be any problems of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we identify that you're not using the total capacity of the machine, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You may check out the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
