RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a certain server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just a couple of clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful website hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you get one of the dedicated servers that we offer you, you'll have a great deal of physical memory available at all times. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration whenever you want through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks diligently alongside all the other parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so in case you order one of our solutions, you will get a high-quality web server that'll guarantee outstanding efficiency for your Internet sites. Even in case you do not use the total capacity of the machine for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
