RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort 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 saved within it. Anytime an application is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, because it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a certain web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server from us, you will have a set amount of RAM readily available at all times. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned permanently to it based on the particular features of the specific package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its resources to one that needs more resources, so you will be able to use the functions of your package deal at their full capability at any time. We set up just a few 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 that their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your sites and applications and you get one of the dedicated service we provide you with, you'll have a large amount of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks extensively alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any machine, so when you get one of our packages, you'll get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure superb overall performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you do not use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended length of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
