RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a particular server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server packages come with a set amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use just a fraction of the resources that your package deal comes with, we will not allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical web server. As we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to ensure the correct performance of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some point. When you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the latest one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. In this way, we make certain that your websites will function properly at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available all of the time, so even in times in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we will never change the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, in the billing CP.
