RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

When you choose to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All our dedicated server solutions come with a massive amount of physical memory, that will allow you to run incredibly heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to make sure that there will never be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration you have chosen. Even if we notice that you aren't using the entire capacity of the machine, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You will be able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
