RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind 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 inside it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a certain hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even if it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory you will get with each and every virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even when you don't use it for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server we offer is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your websites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are subjected to testing before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly working hosting server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed together with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
