RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a certain web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you shall have a allocated amount of RAM readily available all the time. We create the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated entirely to it based on the exact features of the selected plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you will be able to use the functions of your package deal at their full capacity all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it provides a sufficient amount of memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you need an effective website hosting solution for your Internet sites and applications and you purchase one of the dedicated servers hosting packages that we offer, you'll have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration anytime from your billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks comprehensively along with the rest of the parts before we use them to assemble any hosting server, so when you get one of our plans, you will get a high-quality hosting server which will ensure remarkable functionality for your sites. Even when you don't use the full capacity of the server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server only.
