RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, as it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a certain web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory that you will get with each and every VPS server that we provide is guaranteed and will be readily available constantly even if you do not use it all for a long stretch of time. Every single VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never allot some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, so as to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the server performs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available all the time, so even in times where you utilize only a part of it for any given period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing CP.
