RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a given hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you opt to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your current account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server we offer is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software which you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you shall get a flawlessly performing server that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
