RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Each time an app is started, it's stored inside the RAM, as it can 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 work at the same time on a certain server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other clients even if it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All of our virtual private server plans feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even when you use just a fraction of the resources which your package deal includes, we shall never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Since we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to ensure the adequate overall performance of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. When you also choose to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. In this way, we ensure that your Internet sites will operate properly all of the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. As we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation where you employ only a part of it for a period of time, we will not change the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing CP.
