RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Anytime an application is started, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a certain server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
The physical memory you will get with every single virtual private server which we offer is guaranteed and shall be available always even if you do not use the whole thing for a long time period. Each VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all of the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless operation of the physical machine.
