RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a particular web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with every VPS server which we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even when you don't use it all for a long time period. Every single VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server that we offer is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and any software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly functioning server that can guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
