RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever a program is started, it is stored in 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, additional RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a particular hosting server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other customers even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory which you will get with every single virtual private server which we offer is guaranteed and shall be readily available consistently even when you don't use it all for a long period of time. Each VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't assign some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to make sure that it won't ever run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
All our dedicated server solutions come with a massive amount of physical memory, which will allow you to run very heavy web apps without any problems. We use brand-new and meticulously tested hardware components when we install a new server to guarantee that there will never be any problems of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you purchase a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration which you have selected. Even if we find out that you're not using the whole capacity of the web server, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be at your disposal shall always be the same. You will be able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
