RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a particular server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient 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 only a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we shall 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 as well - the additional amount shall be added to your account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server which we provide is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software that you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly operating machine that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
