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, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Each time a program is launched, it is stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a given web server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even when it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software that you install on the server at all times, so even when at some point you use a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly operating web server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
