RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can work simultaneously on a certain server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you get a VPS server from our company, you shall have a set amount of RAM at your disposal always. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned completely to it in line with the exact features of the selected package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your plan at their full capacity all of the time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it provides sufficient memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server that we provide is large enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your sites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly working hosting server that will ensure the best possible performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
