RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a particular web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting package where the resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need a highly effective hosting solution for your websites and programs and you buy one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans we provide you with, you will have a large amount of physical memory available all the time. You will be able to see the hardware configuration at any time through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks comprehensively alongside all the other parts before we use them to put together any hosting server, so if you get one of our packages, you will get a high-quality web server that'll guarantee superb overall performance for your sites. Even in case you do not use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended length of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your server only.
