RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a given hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even if it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each VPS server which we offer you is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even if you don't use it all for a long length of time. Each and every VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, in order to make sure that it will not run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you utilize merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
