RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a particular hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with a few clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a powerful web hosting solution for your websites and apps and you purchase one of the dedicated servers that we offer, you'll have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration at any time from your billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks diligently as well as all of the other parts before we use them to build any web server, so if you purchase one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality server that will ensure excellent functionality for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the whole capacity of the hosting server for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine only.
