RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Anytime a program is launched, it is stored within the RAM, because it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a particular hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server plans include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even when you use only a small fraction of the resources that your package deal includes, we will never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical web server. As we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to guarantee the correct overall performance of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. In case you also opt to upgrade your package deal or to keep the current one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we ensure that your Internet sites will function properly all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
