RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disk drives 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, because it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a given server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
The physical memory that you will get with every single virtual private server that we offer is guaranteed and shall be readily available consistently even when you do not use it all for a long stretch of time. Each and every VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all of the other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to guarantee that it will never run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless overall performance of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server which we offer you is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your sites and any software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly functioning web server that can ensure the best possible efficiency for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
