RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a given hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a particular account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
When you decide to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks within the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated server plans come with a massive amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run extremely heavy web apps without any difficulties. We use brand-new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new server to make certain that there won't be any issues of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we notice that you're not using the entire capacity of the machine, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be readily available shall always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
