RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a given server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS server through our company, you will have a set amount of RAM at your disposal at all times. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned entirely to it based on the exact features of the selected plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its system resources to one which needs more resources, so you will be able to use the functions of your package at their full capability all of the time. We create only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it comes with enough memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly working hosting server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
