RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a certain server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a given account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other clients even when it is not being used.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS

When you opt to host your sites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with simply several mouse clicks within the billing CP.
