RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Each time an application is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a given server, particularly if they're 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 given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS includes 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 in case it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions include a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even when you use a tiny fraction of the resources which your package deal includes, we shall never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical web server. Due to the fact that we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the adequate overall performance of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially eventually. If you also decide to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. This way, we make certain that your web sites will function properly at all times regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server we offer you is large enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly operating hosting server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
