RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Every time an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate simultaneously on a certain hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Since 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 aren't faulty and that the hosting server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation where you utilize only a part of it for a period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
