RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever a program is started, it's stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a certain server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you choose to host your sites on a virtual private server purchased from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with simply several clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server we offer you is big enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your websites and any other software you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly functioning machine that will ensure the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
