RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Whenever a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a particular hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on highly effective web 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 only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you get one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing Control Panel.
