RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time an app is started, it is stored within the RAM, as it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regard to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a given server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is allotted to one server only and won't be used by other customers even when it is not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server plans, you will get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. As we test each and every hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in times where you employ merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You shall be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
