RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a given server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server
packages feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even in case you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources that your package includes, we will not allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical hosting server. Since we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to guarantee the proper operation of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially eventually. When you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the latest one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. In this way, we make sure that your sites will function properly at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you buy one of our dedicated server
plans, you will get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available at all times, so even in times where you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
