RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Every time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a certain server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will 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 included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with several mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available at all times, so even in times in which you utilize only a part of it for a period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
