RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a particular web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available constantly, so even in a situation where you utilize merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
