RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Anytime an app is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate simultaneously on a given server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our dedicated server solutions, you'll get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available at all times, so even in a situation where you employ only a part of it for any period of time, we won't alter the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
