RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Anytime an app is started, it is stored in the RAM, because it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other clients even if it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
All our dedicated server solutions come with a large amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run really heavy web apps with no challenges. We use brand-new and carefully tested hardware components when we install a new server to ensure that there will never be any troubles of any kind. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you buy a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration that you have chosen. Even if we identify that you aren't using the entire capacity of the machine, we will not alter the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You are able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, in your billing Control Panel at any time.
