RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a certain server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

When you opt to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with a few clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you utilize only a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing Control Panel.
