RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a given hosting server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
All of our virtual private server solutions come with a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even in case you use a tiny fraction of the system resources that your plan includes, we shall never allot the free resources to a different VPS account on the exact same physical web server. Because we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have sufficient free memory to ensure the appropriate operation of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. If you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we ensure that your sites will function properly at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
