RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime a program is started, it is stored in the RAM, as it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a given hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from us, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM readily available all the time. We create the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned permanently to it as per the particular features of the selected plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its resources to one which needs more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your plan at their full capability all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has a sufficient amount of memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM that their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we offer you is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your websites and any other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly functioning hosting server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
