RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Anytime an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a particular hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each and every VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even if you don't use the whole thing for a long time period. Each and every VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical web server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to make sure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we shall make certain that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you utilize only a part of it for a period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
