RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved in it. Whenever an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate all at once on a given web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a given account may be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other customers even if it's not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and any other software that you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you shall get a flawlessly performing server that can ensure the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
