RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, as it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a certain hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and won't be used by other clients even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory which you will get with each and every virtual private server we provide is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal at all times even when you don't use it for a long period of time. Each VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there'll always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical hosting server.

The memory shall be available for your websites and any other software which you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are examined before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly operating server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites.
