RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Whenever an application is started, it's stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a given web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a certain account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other clients even when it is not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server we provide is large enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly operating machine that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
