RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time a program is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a given server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

When you choose 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 will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with only a few clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All our dedicated server packages include a massive amount of physical memory, that will permit you to run really heavy web apps without any challenges. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we set up a new web server to make certain that there will never be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you obtain a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we determine that you aren't using the total capacity of the hosting server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be at your disposal shall always be the same. You are able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
