RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Whenever an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you choose to host your websites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with only a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All of our dedicated server plans feature a great deal of physical memory, which will permit you to run extremely heavy web apps without any problems. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to make sure that there will never be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration you have selected. Even if we notice that you aren't using the entire capacity of the server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be available shall always be the same. You can take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
