RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time a program is started, it's stored inside the RAM, since it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a given web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server which we offer is guaranteed and shall be available all of the time even if you don't use it for a long length of time. Every VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a hosting server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation in which you utilize only a part of it for any given period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
