RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Each time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a given server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a particular account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features 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 is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server through our company, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM at your disposal at all times. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allocated entirely to it in line with the specific features of the particular package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its resources to one which requires more resources, so you will be able to use the characteristics of your package at their full potential at any time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it has a sufficient amount of memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your sites and any other software you install on the web server at all times, so even when at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you shall get a flawlessly working server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
