RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime an application is started, it is stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a certain server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server plans come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use just a small fraction of the resources which your package offers, we will not allot the free resources to some other 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 always have sufficient free memory to guarantee the correct functioning of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically eventually. When you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the active one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make certain that your web sites will perform effectively at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server packages include a massive amount of physical memory, which will allow you to run extremely heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand-new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to make sure that there will not be any complications of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we determine that you are not using the total capacity of the hosting server, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be at your disposal will always be the same. You may check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
