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 data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans feature a set amount of RAM. Simply put, even if you use only a tiny fraction of the system resources that your package includes, we'll never allot the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical server. Due to the fact that we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter shall always have ample free memory to ensure the appropriate overall performance of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially eventually. When you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we ensure that your websites will operate properly at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
