RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Each time an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a certain server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it is not being used.

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 you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with several clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a potent website hosting solution for your sites and applications and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide you with, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to see the hardware configuration whenever you want via the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks comprehensively alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any web server, so in case you get one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality server which will guarantee outstanding performance for your websites. Even in case you don't use the full capacity of the hosting server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server only.
