RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, 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. Each time an application is started, it is stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a given server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All our virtual private server plans feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even in case you use only a small fraction of the system resources that your package deal offers, we shall never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical web server. As we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to ensure the appropriate overall performance of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some time. In case you also decide to upgrade your plan 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 certain that your sites will function adequately all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

All of our dedicated server plans feature a massive amount of physical memory, which will enable you to run incredibly heavy web apps with no challenges. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to ensure that there won't be any issues of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we identify that you're not using the entire capacity of the web server, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
