RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to surf your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the info is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even when you don't use it at a certain time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

The physical memory you will get with every single virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and will be available always even if you don't use the whole thing for a long stretch of time. Every VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to ensure that it won't run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical machine.
