RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount shall be added to your current account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
All our dedicated server packages come with a great deal of physical memory, that will permit you to run incredibly heavy web apps with no problems. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new server to ensure that there will never be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you buy a dedicated server, we will ensure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we notice that you're not using the total capacity of the web server, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be at your disposal shall always be the same. You can easily check out the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
