RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Anytime an app is launched, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a particular hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account could be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used always. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it's not used.

The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server that we provide is sufficient enough even for extremely resource-demanding web apps.

All of the components are subjected to testing before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly operating web server that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your websites.
