RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time a program is launched, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a certain web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with just several clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

All of our dedicated server plans include a massive amount of physical memory, that will permit you to run extremely heavy web applications without any issues. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to ensure that there will not be any issues of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we will make certain that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we determine that you aren't using the whole capacity of the machine, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be available will always be the same. You can look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
