RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time an app is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can operate simultaneously on a certain server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you acquire a VPS server through us, you shall have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal 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 allocated completely to it in line with the exact features of the particular package. 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 functions of your package deal at their full potential all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it includes an adequate amount of memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available constantly, so even in times in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we will never alter the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
