RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate simultaneously on a given hosting server, especially if they are 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 particular account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other customers even if it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall functionality of any of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the server runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in times in which you employ merely a part of it for any period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing CP.
