RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a particular web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All of our virtual private server packages come with a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even when you use a tiny fraction of the resources that your plan comes with, we'll never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to guarantee the correct operation of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. When you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. That way, we make sure that your Internet sites will operate adequately at all times regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you need an effective website hosting solution for your websites and apps and you purchase one of the Linux dedicated hosting services we offer you, you'll have a substantial amount of physical memory available all of the time. You'll be able to see the hardware configuration anytime via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks meticulously alongside all of the other parts before we use them to put together any machine, so if you order one of our solutions, you will get a high-quality web server that will guarantee exceptional performance for your sites. Even if you don't use the full capacity of the server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
