RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a certain hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting

If you opt to host your sites on a virtual private server acquired 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 created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with several mouse clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you need an effective hosting solution for your websites and apps and you acquire one of the Linux dedicated servers hosting which we offer, you shall have a substantial amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration anytime through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks diligently as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so if you buy one of our solutions, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that will guarantee superb general performance for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the full capacity of the hosting server for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server only.
