RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an application is started, it is stored within the RAM, since it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a certain server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you'll have a set amount of RAM at your disposal always. We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allocated entirely to it in line with the specific features of the specific package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its resources to one that needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your package deal at their full potential all of the time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it provides an adequate amount of memory to permit all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM that their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server solutions feature a massive amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run very heavy web apps without any challenges. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new server to make sure that there will not be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration that you have selected. Even if we determine that you're not using the full capacity of the server, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You can easily check out the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing CP at any time.
