RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a certain web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server plans come with a great deal of physical memory, which will enable you to run very heavy web applications without any difficulties. We use brand-new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new web server to guarantee that there will not be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we notice that you are not using the entire capacity of the web server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available shall always be the same. You will be able to take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
