RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it is stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a particular hosting server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with simply a couple of clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you purchase one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in times where you employ merely a part of it for any given period of time, we won't change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
