RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a certain hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features 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 clients even when it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory which you will get with every virtual private server which we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available at all times even when you do not use it for a long period of time. Each VPS account gives you set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to ensure that it won't ever run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All our dedicated server packages come with a large amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run really heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new server to make certain that there will never be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we identify that you aren't using the full capacity of the machine, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can easily check out the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
