RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, as it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a certain web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other clients even when it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server packages feature a great deal of physical memory, that will enable you to run rather heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make sure that there won't be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we identify that you're not using the entire capacity of the web server, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be readily available shall always be the same. You are able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
