RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a particular server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you choose to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server acquired from our company, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your current account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with several clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need an effective hosting solution for your sites and programs and you purchase one of the dedicated hosting services that we offer, you will have a substantial amount of physical memory available constantly. You will be able to check out the hardware configuration at any time via the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks meticulously alongside the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any web server, so in case you get one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality server which will ensure fantastic functionality for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the full capacity of the machine for an extended length of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your server exclusively.
