RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is started, it's stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a particular hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available constantly, so even in times where you employ only a part of it for any given period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You will be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
