RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time a program is started, it's stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a certain hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even if it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you decide to host your sites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we will not assign 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 will be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with only several clicks in the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

If you purchase one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available at all times, so even in times in which you use merely a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing CP.
