RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a particular web server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even when it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

When you obtain a virtual private server from us, you'll have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal always. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned completely to it in accordance with the specific features of the particular plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its resources to one that needs more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your package deal at their full capability all of the time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it provides a sufficient amount of memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

All of our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, which will enable you to run very heavy web apps with no difficulties. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new web server to guarantee that there will not be any problems of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we notice that you aren't using the entire capacity of the server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You can look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
