RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a certain server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other clients even if it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always 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 shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need an effective hosting solution for your websites and applications and you get one of the dedicated servers that we provide, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You'll be able to look at the hardware configuration whenever you want via the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks diligently as well as all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any hosting server, so if you purchase one of our solutions, you shall get a high-quality web server that'll guarantee superb efficiency for your sites. Even when you don't use the whole capacity of the server for an extended time period, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
