RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a particular web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful 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 little part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with just a few mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting

The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we provide is big enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your websites and every other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly operating machine that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
