RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an app is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can operate simultaneously on a given hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
When you obtain a virtual private server through us, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal at all times. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted completely to it as per the particular features of the particular package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its resources to one that requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your plan at their full capability all of the time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it includes enough memory to enable all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM which their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server we supply is large enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly operating hosting server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
