RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Each time a program is started, it is stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a particular hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a certain account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allocated to one server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

When you decide to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server bought from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with only a few mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you need a powerful hosting solution for your websites and programs and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated hosting we provide you with, you'll have a great deal of physical memory available at all times. You'll be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks thoroughly alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any machine, so if you purchase one of our packages, you will get a high-quality server which will ensure exceptional general performance for your sites. Even in case you don't use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
