RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored in the RAM, since it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a particular hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your current account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with several mouse clicks in the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in times in which you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
