RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Each time a program is started, it is stored in the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a given hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a certain account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you decide to host your sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with only a few clicks inside the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a potent hosting solution for your Internet sites and applications and you obtain one of the dedicated web hosting plans we provide, you shall have a large amount of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration whenever you want from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks thoroughly as well as all of the other parts before we use them to build any web server, so when you buy one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that'll guarantee remarkable overall performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the total capacity of the machine for an extended amount of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your server only.
