RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an application is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a particular hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it's not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will 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 included 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'll never assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with only several clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

When you need a potent web hosting solution for your websites and applications and you purchase one of the dedicated web hosting plans we offer, you shall have a great deal of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration anytime via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks diligently alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to build any machine, so if you purchase one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality server which will guarantee remarkable overall performance for your websites. Even in case you don't use the full capacity of the server for an extended time period, the physical memory will still be available for your web server exclusively.
