RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a particular web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a particular account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your existing account fully. You will be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need an effective web hosting solution for your websites and apps and you obtain one of the dedicated service which we provide, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available at all times. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks comprehensively along with the rest of the parts before we use them to build any web server, so when you get one of our solutions, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that'll guarantee remarkable general performance for your sites. Even if you don't use the whole capacity of the machine for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server only.
