RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time an application is started, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run all at once on a given web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you decide to host your sites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even briefly. 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'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with a couple of clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a potent website hosting solution for your websites and programs and you buy one of the dedicated service we offer, you shall have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks comprehensively alongside all the other parts before we use them to build any web server, so if you order one of our solutions, you will get a high-quality server which will ensure exceptional performance for your sites. Even in case you do not use the full capacity of the hosting server for an extended time period, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
