RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a certain hosting server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
When you get one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you utilize just a part of it for a period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing Control Panel.
