RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Whenever an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a particular server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available always even when you do not use it for a long length of time. Every single VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from the rest of the accounts on the physical machine, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, in order to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a hosting server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the web server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all of the time, so even in times where you use only a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
