RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Each time an app is launched, it's stored inside the RAM, since it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can run simultaneously on a certain web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we offer you is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and every other software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the hosting server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly operating machine that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
