RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Each time a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, as it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a certain hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you decide to host your sites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we'll never allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you need an effective website hosting solution for your Internet sites and applications and you get one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting packages which we offer you, you will have a substantial amount of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration anytime from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks meticulously as well as all the other parts before we use them to build any machine, so when you order one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality server that'll ensure excellent general performance for your sites. Even when you do not use the full capacity of the hosting server for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
