RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed considerably 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 operate at the same time on a given web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides 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 in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you opt to host your websites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with only a few clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful website hosting solution for your sites and programs and you acquire one of the dedicated servers which we offer, you shall have a substantial amount of physical memory available all of the time. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks thoroughly alongside all of the other parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so when you order one of our solutions, you will get a high-quality web server that will guarantee superb overall performance for your sites. Even in case you don't use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended length of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server only.
