RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, because it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your current account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server which we offer is sufficient enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and all other software which you install on the web server at all times, so even when 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 the parts are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly working server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
