RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits 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, due to the fact that it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a given web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even when it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server we offer you is large enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your 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 system resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly operating server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
