RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Whenever an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate at the same time on a given web server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you decide to host your sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with a few clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server which we offer you is large enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and every other software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly functioning web server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
