RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, 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. Every time a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, as it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a particular web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not in use.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

If you decide to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective web 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 a little part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing CP.
