RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a particular server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All of our virtual private server packages include a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even in case you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources which your package deal features, we shall never allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical web server. Due to the fact that we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the adequate functioning of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly eventually. When you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. That way, we guarantee that your web sites will perform effectively all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server we offer is large enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and all other software you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly performing web server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
