RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Every time a program is started, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given hosting server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
When you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server bought from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your current account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with simply a few mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
