RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a particular server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a certain account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
All our virtual private server solutions include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use only a small fraction of the resources that your package offers, we shall never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. Due to the fact that we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to guarantee the proper functioning of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some point. If you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we make certain that your Internet sites will function correctly constantly regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server that we supply is large enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and all other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working web server that can ensure the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
