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 disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Each time an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a particular web 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 solution where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your sites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly performing web server that can ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full server configuration specifications within your billing Control Panel.
