RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time an application is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a given server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All of our virtual private server solutions include a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even when you use a small fraction of the system resources which your plan offers, we will never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. As we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to secure the adequate functioning of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously eventually. In the event you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved just for your account. That way, we ensure that your Internet sites will function adequately all of the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all the time, so even in times where you use just a part of it for any period of time, we shall never change the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, inside the billing CP.
