RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run all at once on a particular hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and will be available consistently even when you do not use it all for a long time period. Each and every VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a highly effective website hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated hosting we offer you, you'll have a massive amount of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks extensively as well as all the other parts before we use them to build any server, so when you order one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality hosting server which will guarantee superb functionality for your websites. Even when you don't use the entire capacity of the hosting server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your machine only.
