RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a certain web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even when it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans come with a set amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even in case you use a fraction of the system resources that your package comes with, we will never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have plenty of free memory to ensure the correct operation of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded considerably at some time. In case you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the current one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we guarantee that your web sites will perform correctly constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans include a massive amount of physical memory, that will permit you to run really heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we install a new server to guarantee that there won't be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we shall ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have selected. Even if we find out that you aren't using the full capacity of the web server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be readily available will always be the same. You will be able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
