RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, since 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 run concurrently on a given hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.

We create the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so once a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted completely to it in accordance with the particular features of the specific package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which does not use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you'll be able to use the features of your plan at their full potential all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it includes sufficient memory to enable all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM that their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
