RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a given hosting server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
If you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account fully. You will be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a few mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you need a potent web hosting solution for your websites and apps and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated hosting which we offer you, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time via the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks diligently as well as all of the other parts before we use them to build any server, so in case you get one of our solutions, you shall get a high-quality web server that'll ensure outstanding functionality for your sites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the server for an extended period of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your machine only.
