RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a given server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually 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 entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a couple of clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need an effective hosting solution for your sites and applications and you buy one of the Linux dedicated servers which we offer you, you shall have a great deal of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to see the hardware configuration whenever you want through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks diligently as well as all the other parts before we use them to put together any hosting server, so when you order one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality web server which will guarantee remarkable performance for your sites. Even when you do not use the full capacity of the server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server only.
