RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime a program is started, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the resources of a certain account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal constantly. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned permanently to it in accordance with the exact features of the particular package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its resources to one which needs more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your package deal at their full capacity at any time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it has an adequate amount of memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM which their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
All of our dedicated server plans feature a massive amount of physical memory, that will allow you to run extremely heavy web apps without any problems. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to guarantee that there won't be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you buy a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we determine that you're not using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be available shall always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
