RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Each time an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably faster 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 concurrently on a particular server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory that you will get with every single VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and will be available consistently even if you don't use all of it for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to make sure that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there'll always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical web server.
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 applications. The memory will be readily available for your sites and any software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly performing server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
