RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a certain server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a particular account can be flexible and sometimes 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 allotted to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even in case you use just a small fraction of the system resources which your plan includes, we will not allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the adequate overall performance of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. If you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to add just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. This way, we make certain that your Internet sites will perform correctly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server packages feature a large amount of physical memory, which will enable you to run very heavy web applications without any challenges. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we set up a new server to make sure that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you buy a dedicated server, we will make certain that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we identify that you are not using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be readily available will always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
