RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, which, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a given web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a web server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in times in which you use merely a part of it for any period of time, we won't change the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing Control Panel.
