RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a given web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account fully. You will be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks through the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a potent web hosting solution for your Internet sites and programs and you obtain one of the dedicated servers which we offer you, you shall have a great deal of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration at any time through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks comprehensively alongside all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any web server, so if you buy one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality web server that will guarantee remarkable performance for your websites. Even in case you do not use the whole capacity of the server for an extended amount of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your web server exclusively.
