RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Whenever an app is launched, it is stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably faster 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 at the same time on a given hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a highly effective web hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you buy one of the dedicated service we offer, you will have a great deal of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration anytime from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks thoroughly alongside all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any hosting server, so if you buy one of our packages, you will get a high-quality web server that will ensure exceptional performance for your websites. Even in case you don't use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
