RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Whenever an app is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a particular web server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other clients even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory you will get with every single virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even if you don't use it all for a long stretch of time. Every VPS account provides set 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 shall never allot some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to make sure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The memory will be readily available for your sites and all other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly performing hosting server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
