RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Anytime an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a certain 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 system resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server bought from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account completely. You will be able to upgrade either the entire plan or just the server’s RAM with only a few clicks within the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you need a potent website hosting solution for your sites and programs and you acquire one of the dedicated hosting services that we provide, you'll have a great deal of physical memory available all of the time. You'll be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks diligently along with the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any hosting server, so in case you order one of our solutions, you'll get a high-quality web server that'll ensure fantastic general performance for your Internet sites. Even in case you don't use the total capacity of the hosting server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
