RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a certain web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with every VPS server we offer you is guaranteed and will be available consistently even when you do not use the whole thing for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account provides fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, so as to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there shall always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need an effective website hosting solution for your websites and applications and you obtain one of the Linux dedicated service we provide you with, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available constantly. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks thoroughly as well as all of the other parts before we use them to put together any machine, so in case you buy one of our packages, you shall get a high-quality server that will guarantee remarkable overall performance for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the entire capacity of the machine for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
