RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even if it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which 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 powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with simply several mouse clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and every other software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly operating web server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
