RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Anytime an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, as it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run all at once on a particular hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all of the time, so even in times in which you employ merely a part of it for any given period of time, we won't modify the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
