RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Whenever an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, since it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a certain hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with each and every VPS server which we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even if you do not use it all for a long period of time. Each VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical web server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allot some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. That way, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions feature a massive amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run rather heavy web apps without any problems. We use brand new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to make certain that there will never be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration which you have selected. Even if we find out that you are not using the full capacity of the hosting server, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be available shall always be the same. You will be able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
