RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, because it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a particular web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server from our company, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM available at all times. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated completely to it in line with the exact features of the selected plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its resources to one that requires more resources, so you'll be able to use the features of your package deal at their full capability at any time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it has enough memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you purchase one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the hosting server functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available constantly, so even in a situation where you utilize just a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing CP.
