RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a certain web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
When you opt to host your websites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we shall not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with a few mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your Internet sites and applications and you acquire one of the dedicated hosting that we offer you, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration anytime from your billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks thoroughly as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any machine, so if you get one of our solutions, you will get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure fantastic efficiency for your Internet sites. Even when you do not use the total capacity of the machine for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
