RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever an application is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, as it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a particular server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account completely. You will be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just several clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need an effective hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans that we offer you, you shall have a great deal of physical memory available at all times. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime via the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks thoroughly as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any server, so if you get one of our packages, you shall get a high-quality hosting server which will ensure exceptional functionality for your sites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the hosting server for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
