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 info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time a program is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a given server, especially when they're 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 resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other clients even if it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS 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 highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we'll never allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your current account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with simply several clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation in which you use only a part of it for a period of time, we will never alter the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing CP.
