RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is started, it is stored within the RAM, because it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a given hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
If you opt to host your websites on a virtual private server bought from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your existing account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with just a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.
