RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a particular server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with each virtual private server which we offer you is guaranteed and shall be at your disposal always even if you don't use the whole thing for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to make sure that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages include a large amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run extremely heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to ensure that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you purchase a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we find out that you are not using the total capacity of the server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You will be able to take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
