RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Anytime an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run all at once on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. Simply put, even if you use only a fraction of the resources your package deal features, we will never assign the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical hosting server. Since we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have plenty of free memory to guarantee the adequate operation of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. In case you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to add just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. In this way, we make sure that your websites will operate adequately at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need a highly effective web hosting solution for your sites and applications and you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans we provide, you will have a great deal of physical memory available constantly. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration whenever you want through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks thoroughly as well as all of the other parts before we use them to build any machine, so when you order one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that will ensure fantastic overall performance for your websites. Even when you don't use the total capacity of the web server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server only.
