RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time a program is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run all at once on a given hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other clients even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even if you use only a small fraction of the resources which your package includes, we will never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical server. Since we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to secure the correct overall performance of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some time. When you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. In this way, we ensure that your websites will function adequately at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans come with a large amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run incredibly heavy web apps without any problems. We use brand new and meticulously tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to ensure that there will not be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration that you have picked out. Even if we find out that you're not using the total capacity of the web server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be available shall always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
