RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a given web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a particular account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks in the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. As we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available constantly, so even in times in which you use just a part of it for a period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You shall be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
