RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time a program is started, it is stored in the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a particular web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

If you choose to host your websites on a virtual private server bought from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we'll never allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with several clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server which we offer you is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and any other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly working hosting server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
