RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Anytime an app is started, it's stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a certain server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server through our company, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal at all times. We create the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated permanently to it in accordance with the exact features of the specific package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the functions of your package at their full potential all of the time. We create only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it comes with enough memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in times where you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing CP.
