RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Whenever an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a certain server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS offers 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 customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you decide to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on highly effective web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with a few clicks within the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server packages come with a massive amount of physical memory, that will allow you to run very heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand-new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new server to ensure that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we determine that you are not using the entire capacity of the server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You are able to check out the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
