RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Each time a program is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a certain hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your websites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we shall not allot 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 current account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with simply several clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server which we supply is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly performing hosting server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
