RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Every time a program is started, it's stored within the RAM, because it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can operate at the same time on a particular hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and sometimes depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it is not in use.

When you acquire one of our dedicated server solutions, you will get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we assemble a hosting server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in a situation in which you utilize just a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
