RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a particular hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you acquire a VPS server through our company, you will have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal all the time. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned entirely to it as per the particular features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you will be able to use the characteristics of your package at their full capability at any time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it comes with a sufficient amount of memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available at all times, so even in a situation where you employ merely a part of it for any period of time, we will never change the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing Control Panel.
