RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a particular hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides 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 if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and will be at your disposal always even when you do not use all of it for a long stretch of time. Each VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, to guarantee that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you purchase one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you use merely a part of it for any period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing CP.
