RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored within the RAM, because it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a particular server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other clients even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and shall be readily available consistently even if you don't use it for a long length of time. Every single VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall not allocate some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to guarantee that it won't ever run out of memory. In this way, there'll always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical machine.
