RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Each time an application is started, it is stored inside the RAM, since it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work simultaneously on a particular web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other customers even if it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you opt to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that 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 highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server which we offer you is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and any software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are examined before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly working server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
