RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a particular web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and will be available consistently even when you don't use all of it for a long length of time. Every single VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even if 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 established on it, in order to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need a highly effective web hosting solution for your sites and apps and you acquire one of the dedicated servers that we provide you with, you'll have a great deal of physical memory available all the time. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime via the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks diligently alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to build any machine, so if you purchase one of our solutions, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that will guarantee remarkable general performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you do not use the whole capacity of the machine for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
