RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work simultaneously on a certain web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting package in which 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 allocated to one server only and won't be used by other clients even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even when you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources your package features, we'll never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. Because we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to ensure the correct functioning of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically eventually. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we make sure that your sites will perform correctly all of the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions feature a large amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run extremely heavy web applications without any difficulties. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new web server to ensure that there won't be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you buy a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we determine that you aren't using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available shall always be the same. You may look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
