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, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Anytime an app is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a given server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which 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 you can use always. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we'll never allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your current account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with only a couple of clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a highly effective hosting solution for your websites and apps and you buy one of the dedicated web hosting plans we offer, you will have a substantial amount of physical memory available at all times. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime via the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks diligently as well as all the other parts before we use them to build any machine, so when you purchase one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality web server that'll ensure fantastic overall performance for your websites. Even in case you do not use the entire capacity of the server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your server only.
