RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Whenever a program is started, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a given hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting package where the resources of a certain account may 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 always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
If you get a virtual private server from our company, you shall have a set amount of RAM readily available all the time. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is created, the RAM is assigned permanently to it in line with the particular features of the selected package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its system resources to one which needs more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your package at their full capability all of the time. We create only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it comes with sufficient memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your websites and programs and you buy one of the Linux dedicated hosting that we offer, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You shall be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from your billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test the memory sticks comprehensively as well as all the other parts before we use them to put together any machine, so if you purchase one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality server which will ensure outstanding performance for your sites. Even in case you don't use the total capacity of the web server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your hosting server only.
