RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a particular hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

When you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we'll never allocate the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This 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 the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with only several mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server that we provide is large enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your websites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly operating server that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
