RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored inside the RAM, as it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a certain hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a certain account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even when it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
If you acquire a virtual private server from us, you will have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal at all times. We create the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated permanently to it in accordance with the specific features of the specific plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its resources to one that needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the characteristics of your plan at their full potential all of the time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it provides sufficient memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the web server runs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you utilize just a part of it for any period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You will be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing CP.
