RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Each time a program is launched, it's stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a particular web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages include a large amount of physical memory, which will enable you to run extremely heavy web apps with no problems. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to guarantee that there won't be any issues of any kind. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we identify that you're not using the total capacity of the server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be available shall always be the same. You can check out the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
