RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored inside the RAM, because it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a certain hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you acquire a virtual private server through us, you will have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal always. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so when a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted entirely to it in line with the particular features of the selected package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its system resources to one which needs more resources, so you will be able to use the characteristics of your package at their full capacity at any time. We create only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it includes enough memory to enable all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their web servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
