RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a given hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with simply a few mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you purchase one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you employ merely a part of it for any period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
