RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Each time a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a particular server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you obtain a VPS server through us, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM available all the time. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allocated permanently to it in accordance with the specific features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its resources to one that requires more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your package at their full potential all of the time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it comes with sufficient memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your websites and any software which you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you shall get a flawlessly functioning web server that can guarantee the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
