RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run all at once on a given hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we shall not allot 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'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server that we offer you is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and all other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly operating hosting server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
