RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime an app is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run all at once on a given server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a particular account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we'll never allot 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 current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with a couple of clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server that we supply is big enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your sites and all other software that you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly working hosting server that will ensure the best possible general performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
