RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Whenever an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, because it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a given web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your current account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with only a few mouse clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we won't change the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
