RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, since it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a certain hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even if it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with a few clicks through the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions feature a large amount of physical memory, that'll allow you to run really heavy web apps with no challenges. We use brand-new and meticulously tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to make sure that there won't be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you buy a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we notice that you aren't using the total capacity of the machine, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You may look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
