RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time a program is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a certain web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even in case it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans come with a great deal of physical memory, which will enable you to run extremely heavy web apps with no challenges. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new server to make certain that there will never be any problems of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best efficiency possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we determine that you aren't using the full capacity of the web server, we shall not alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that will be available will always be the same. You may check out the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
