RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time a program is launched, it is stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a given web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server that we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available always even when you don't use all of it for a long time period. Every single VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical web server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, to ensure that it won't ever run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server that we supply is big enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and any software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working web server that can guarantee the best possible performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
