RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a certain web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

If you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server purchased from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall 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 won't assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with a couple of mouse clicks through the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting

All our dedicated server plans come with a large amount of physical memory, that will enable you to run extremely heavy web applications without any difficulties. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new web server to make sure that there won't be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we discover that you aren't using the total capacity of the hosting server, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be readily available will always be the same. You can look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
