RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate at the same time on a particular web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other customers even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages include a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even if you use a small fraction of the system resources that your plan features, we'll never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical web server. Because we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to secure the proper overall performance of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some point. When you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the latest one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. In this way, we make certain that your Internet sites will function effectively all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a highly effective website hosting solution for your websites and apps and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated servers that we provide you with, you will have a large amount of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks extensively as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to assemble any hosting server, so when you order one of our plans, you will get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure excellent overall performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you do not use the whole capacity of the hosting server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your server only.
