RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a given server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you get a VPS server from us, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM readily available constantly. We set up the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned entirely to it in line with the specific features of the specific plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you will be able to use the features of your package deal at their full potential at any time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it comes with enough memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server that we offer is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your sites and every other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly operating hosting server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
