RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Whenever a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a certain hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other clients even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with a few mouse clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server packages feature a massive amount of physical memory, that will permit you to run incredibly heavy web apps with no challenges. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new web server to make sure that there will never be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you purchase a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we find out that you are not using the whole capacity of the machine, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be available will always be the same. You will be able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
