RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a particular server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need an effective website hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you get one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide you with, you'll have a substantial amount of physical memory available all of the time. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks extensively alongside all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any hosting server, so in case you purchase one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure outstanding efficiency for your sites. Even in case you do not use the entire capacity of the web server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your web server exclusively.
