RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work simultaneously on a given web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you opt to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with just several clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

When you purchase one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
