RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a particular hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

When you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server purchased from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you employ merely a part of it for any period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
