RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run all at once on a certain hosting server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you obtain a VPS server
from our company, you'll have a set amount of RAM available constantly. We create the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allocated completely to it as per the specific features of the selected package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its system resources to one that needs more resources, so you will be able to use the functions of your package deal at their full capacity all of the time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it comes with an adequate amount of memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our dedicated server
solutions, you shall get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation in which you utilize merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will never change the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
