RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Each time an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work simultaneously on a certain server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with only a couple of mouse clicks within the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a highly effective website hosting solution for your websites and apps and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans which we offer you, you'll have a substantial amount of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks comprehensively as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any machine, so if you order one of our plans, you'll get a high-quality server that will ensure fantastic performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the full capacity of the machine for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
