RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time a program is launched, it's stored within the RAM, as it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a certain web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your websites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available all of the time 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 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 won't allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with a few mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and all other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
