RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a given web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with only a few clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

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