RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, because it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a certain web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

The physical memory which you will get with each VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be available always even when you do not use all of it for a long time period. Each and every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. That way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we supply is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and any software that you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are tested before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly performing server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
