RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, since it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a given web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a given account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is allocated to one server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server through us, you will have a set amount of RAM available at all times. We create the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted entirely to it as per the exact features of the selected plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its system resources to one that requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the features of your plan at their full capacity all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it provides a sufficient amount of memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans come with a great deal of physical memory, that will enable you to run rather heavy web applications with no challenges. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make certain that there won't be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you obtain a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we identify that you are not using the entire capacity of the machine, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You may check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
