RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, as it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All our virtual private server packages feature a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even in case you use only a small fraction of the system resources which your package offers, we'll never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. Due to the fact that we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to secure the correct operation of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. In case you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to include only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we ensure that your websites will perform adequately all of the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available constantly, so even in times where you use only a part of it for a period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
