RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Whenever a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a certain web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a given account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory you will get with every single virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even if you don't use all of it for a long period of time. Each VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we offer is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your websites and all other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are tested before the server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly functioning machine that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
