RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Each time an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, since it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a particular hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any of them. Since we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a hosting server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available constantly, so even in times in which you utilize only a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
