RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a given hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on highly effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with a few clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
All our dedicated server packages feature a great deal of physical memory, which will enable you to run extremely heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand-new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make sure that there will not be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we determine that you aren't using the whole capacity of the machine, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be readily available shall always be the same. You are able to check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
