RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
If you obtain a virtual private server from our company, you'll have a set amount of RAM available at all times. We create the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allotted permanently to it as per the exact features of the specific package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its resources to one that needs more resources, so you will be able to use the characteristics of your package deal at their full potential all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it provides enough memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you purchase one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available all the time, so even in times in which you employ only a part of it for any period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing CP.
