RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Every time a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work all at once on a given hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server packages include a massive amount of physical memory, that'll permit you to run very heavy web applications with no issues. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we set up a new server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration that you have picked. Even if we notice that you are not using the full capacity of the hosting server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal shall always be the same. You may check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
