RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Whenever an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, since it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a particular server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory you will get with each and every VPS server we offer is guaranteed and will be at your disposal all of the time even if you don't use all of it for a long period of time. Every single VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to ensure that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you employ only a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing CP.
