RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Anytime a program is started, it is stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work simultaneously on a certain web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server packages include a great deal of physical memory, that will allow you to run extremely heavy web applications without any problems. We use brand new and carefully tested hardware components when we build a new server to make sure that there won't be any issues of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we'll make certain that you get the best functionality possible from the configuration you have picked. Even if we notice that you're not using the whole capacity of the server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You are able to take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing Control Panel at any time.
