RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Every time an app is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work simultaneously on a particular web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a given account may 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 server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages include a set amount of RAM. Put simply, even if you use only a tiny fraction of the resources your package deal features, we shall never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. Due to the fact that we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to ensure the correct overall performance of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some point. If you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we guarantee that your websites will perform properly constantly regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans include a massive amount of physical memory, that will enable you to run very heavy web applications without any issues. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new web server to ensure that there will not be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you purchase a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we notice that you're not using the full capacity of the server, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You will be able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
