RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a particular hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one server only and won't be used by other clients even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you decide to host your sites on a virtual private server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with only a few mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test every hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you utilize just a part of it for any given period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
