RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Anytime an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a particular server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you choose to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

When you purchase one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
