RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run all at once on a certain hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM which 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 servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your current account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a few mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server we provide is big enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your sites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly performing server that can ensure the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
