RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a particular server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a given account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server plans come with a massive amount of physical memory, that'll enable you to run incredibly heavy web apps with no issues. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we set up a new hosting server to ensure that there will not be any issues of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you purchase a dedicated server, we shall ensure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have picked out. Even if we identify that you're not using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we won't modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be available shall always be the same. You can easily take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
