RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run all at once on a certain web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server through us, you'll have a allocated amount of RAM readily available at all times. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allocated entirely to it as per the exact features of the specific plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its system resources to one which needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your package deal at their full potential all of the time. We create only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has sufficient memory to permit all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM which their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server that we offer is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your websites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly working machine that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
