RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run simultaneously on a given 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 resources of a given account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you choose to host your Internet sites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server solutions come with a large amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run extremely heavy web apps with no issues. We use new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new server to ensure that there will not be any problems of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have picked. Even if we notice that you are not using the full capacity of the machine, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal will always be the same. You can easily check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
