RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Anytime a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, since it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a certain account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you opt to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with just a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

All our dedicated server packages come with a massive amount of physical memory, that will enable you to run really heavy web apps without any issues. We use new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new server to make certain that there won't be any problems of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we find out that you're not using the total capacity of the server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be readily available shall always be the same. You may look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
