RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Each time a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, as it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use just a fraction of the system resources your package features, we will not allot the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical web server. As we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to secure the correct performance of all VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. If you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. That way, we make sure that your Internet sites will perform correctly all of the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server we provide is large enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and any software which you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly functioning web server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
