RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a certain server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you opt to host your websites on a VPS server
acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we shall not allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with simply a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server
which we offer is big enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your websites and any other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly functioning hosting server that will guarantee the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
