RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, as it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a given hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a given account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you decide to host your sites on a VPS server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use just a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server that we offer is big enough even for very resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your websites and any software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly working web server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
