RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, as it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a given server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions include a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even in case you use a tiny fraction of the resources your package offers, we'll never allot the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical web server. Due to the fact that we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to secure the correct operation of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. If you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we guarantee that your websites will operate correctly constantly regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server which we supply is large enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and any other software that you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are examined before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly working web server that can ensure the best possible efficiency for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
