RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that allows the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM noticeably quicker than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all of the information has to be read so as to access specific data. In case you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes depend on the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be readily available at all times and will never be assigned to other customers even if it is not used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
All our virtual private server packages feature a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources your plan includes, we'll never allot the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical web server. As we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to guarantee the adequate operation of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. In the event you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we guarantee that your websites will function correctly all of the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. As we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you employ just a part of it for any given period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
