RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Whenever an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can run all at once on a particular web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with every single VPS server that we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available always even when you don't use it for a long period of time. Each VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to make sure that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a highly effective hosting solution for your sites and applications and you get one of the Linux dedicated servers which we offer, you will have a great deal of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration whenever you want via the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks extensively along with the rest of the parts before we use them to build any web server, so if you order one of our packages, you'll get a high-quality server that will guarantee remarkable efficiency for your websites. Even when you do not use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server exclusively.
