RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Each time an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run all at once on a particular server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

If you choose to host your sites on a virtual private server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it ultimately 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 if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with only a couple of clicks in the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server which we provide is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your sites and any other software which you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the system resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly operating web server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
