RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a particular server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even if it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server through us, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM available at all times. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated entirely to it based on the exact features of the specific package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the functions of your package at their full potential at any time. We create only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it comes with sufficient memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM that their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we offer you is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your websites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are tested before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you shall get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
