RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even if it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans come with a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even when you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources which your plan comes with, we'll never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. Because we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to guarantee the proper functioning of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. In case you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to include just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we ensure that your web sites will operate correctly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a powerful website hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you buy one of the Linux dedicated servers that we provide, you shall have a massive amount of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks diligently as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so if you order one of our packages, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure fantastic overall performance for your websites. Even if you don't use the whole capacity of the hosting server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine only.
