RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Each time an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, since it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a particular server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use just a tiny fraction of the resources that your plan offers, we'll never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the exact same physical server. As we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to ensure the proper operation of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. In case you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. This way, we guarantee that your websites will function properly all the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available all the time, so even in a situation where you employ only a part of it for a period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
