RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Each time an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a particular web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your websites 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 highly effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all 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 total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your current account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with several mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need an effective website hosting solution for your sites and applications and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans we provide, you will have a large amount of physical memory available constantly. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks thoroughly as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any machine, so when you buy one of our packages, you shall get a high-quality web server which will guarantee excellent overall performance for your sites. Even if you don't use the entire capacity of the machine for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
