RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Anytime an application is started, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a certain server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other customers even when it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server solutions feature a massive amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run extremely heavy web apps without any problems. We use brand new and meticulously tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to make certain that there will never be any issues of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you get a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we notice that you're not using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be readily available will always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
