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 information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Whenever a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a given server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans include a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use a tiny fraction of the resources which your package includes, we'll never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Because we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to secure the proper overall performance of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some point. When you also decide to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to include only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. That way, we make certain that your Internet sites will function adequately all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server plans come with a large amount of physical memory, that will allow you to run very heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new server to ensure that there will never be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you buy a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we find out that you are not using the full capacity of the machine, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be at your disposal will always be the same. You are able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
