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, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Every time an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web apps can operate all at once on a certain server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server plans feature a great deal of physical memory, that will allow you to run rather heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new hosting server to guarantee that there won't be any complications of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration you have picked out. Even if we find out that you aren't using the whole capacity of the web server, we will never alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be at your disposal will always be the same. You may look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
