RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time a program is started, it's stored within the RAM, because it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a particular server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

All of our virtual private server packages include a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use a fraction of the resources your package offers, we'll never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. As we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate operation of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially eventually. When you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the latest one and to add just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. That way, we ensure that your websites will operate effectively all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we provide is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your sites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly performing hosting server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
