RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that 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 applications can operate simultaneously on a certain server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory you will get with every virtual private server which we offer you is guaranteed and will be available consistently even if you don't use the whole thing for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your sites and every other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly functioning hosting server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
