RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a given hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from us, you shall have a set amount of RAM available always. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated permanently to it based on the exact features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its system resources to one that needs more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your plan at their full potential all of the time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it includes a sufficient amount of memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server solutions include a large amount of physical memory, which will allow you to run very heavy web applications with no problems. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make certain that there won't be any issues of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you buy a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we notice that you are not using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
