RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a certain server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the web server performs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you employ just a part of it for any period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing Control Panel.
