RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Anytime a program is started, it is stored within the RAM, because it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a particular server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory which you will get with each and every virtual private server which we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available always even when you do not use the whole thing for a long period of time. Each VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. That way, there shall always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

All of our dedicated server plans feature a massive amount of physical memory, that'll allow you to run very heavy web apps without any issues. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new server to guarantee that there won't be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we shall ensure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we find out that you are not using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be available will always be the same. You are able to take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
