RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is started, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a particular hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages come with a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use a tiny fraction of the resources your package features, we will never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. Due to the fact that we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the appropriate operation of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some time. In the event you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. That way, we ensure that your websites will perform effectively all of the time no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server solutions come with a large amount of physical memory, which will enable you to run really heavy web applications with no challenges. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to ensure that there won't be any problems of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you order a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we discover that you aren't using the total capacity of the hosting server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be available will always be the same. You can check out the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
