RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a given server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All of our virtual private server packages feature a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use a small fraction of the system resources your plan offers, we will never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical web server. As we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the adequate performance of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly eventually. If you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. This way, we guarantee that your sites will perform adequately at all times regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages feature a great deal of physical memory, that'll allow you to run really heavy web apps with no difficulties. We use new and meticulously tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make certain that there will not be any complications of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we discover that you aren't using the total capacity of the hosting server, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be at your disposal will always be the same. You may check out the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
