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, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an app is launched, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a particular hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from us, you shall have a set amount of RAM at your disposal constantly. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allotted completely to it in accordance with the exact features of the selected package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your package deal at their full capacity all of the time. We create only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it comes with enough memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server packages include a large amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run rather heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to ensure that there will not be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you buy a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we notice that you're not using the entire capacity of the server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be available will always be the same. You will be able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
