RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Every time an app is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a given web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages come with a massive amount of physical memory, which will enable you to run rather heavy web apps with no issues. We use brand new and extensively tested hardware components when we install a new hosting server to make certain that there will never be any complications of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you order a dedicated server, we shall make sure that you get the best performance possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we notice that you're not using the total capacity of the web server, we will never modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM that'll be available shall always be the same. You can easily check out the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing CP at any time.
