RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Whenever an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a given web server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server through us, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM readily available always. We create the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allotted completely to it in line with the particular features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its resources to one that requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the functions of your plan at their full capacity at any time. We set up only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make certain that it includes a sufficient amount of memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans feature a great deal of physical memory, that will enable you to run very heavy web applications without any challenges. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we shall ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we discover that you're not using the total capacity of the machine, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You may take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
