RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Each time an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a given web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you choose to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall 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 that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server we provide is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your sites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly operating server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
