RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an app is launched, it is stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a certain hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other end 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 customers even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server
which we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available consistently even when you do not use all of it for a long period of time. Every VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you buy 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 programs without any effect on the overall performance of any one of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all of the time, so even in times where you utilize merely a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
