RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, because it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate simultaneously on a particular hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you get a virtual private server through us, you will have a set amount of RAM at your disposal at all times. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allotted entirely to it based on the particular features of the particular package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the functions of your package at their full potential all of the time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it provides an adequate amount of memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation where you use only a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
