RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a certain hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory you will get with each and every virtual private server that we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available consistently even when you do not use it for a long period of time. Every single VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to make sure that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available at all times, so even in times in which you employ just a part of it for a period of time, we will not change the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
