RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Each time an application is started, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a particular hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a certain account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will have a allocated amount of RAM available always. We create the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned permanently to it based on the particular features of the selected package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its system resources to one that requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your package deal at their full capacity all of the time. We set up only a few 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 that their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a highly effective hosting solution for your sites and programs and you get one of the dedicated servers we provide you with, you shall have a great deal of physical memory available at all times. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks thoroughly along with all of the other parts before we use them to build any hosting server, so when you purchase one of our packages, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that'll guarantee superb general performance for your Internet sites. Even when you don't use the full capacity of the machine for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine only.
