RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a given web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory which you will get with every single virtual private server that we offer is guaranteed and will be at your disposal always even when you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, to make sure that it will never run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated server solutions feature a large amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run really heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new web server to ensure that there will never be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you purchase a dedicated server, we shall ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we discover that you're not using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You can easily check the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
