RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time an application is started, it's stored within the RAM, since it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a certain web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with each virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be available all of the time even if you don't use the whole thing for a long period of time. Each VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to ensure that it won't run out of memory. That way, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated server plans come with a great deal of physical memory, that will permit you to run really heavy web apps with no issues. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new web server to make sure that there won't be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we'll make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we discover that you're not using the total capacity of the web server, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
