RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Whenever a program is launched, it's stored in the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can work at the same time on a certain server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a given account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS has a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even if it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you obtain a VPS server from our company, you shall have a allocated amount of RAM available constantly. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allocated entirely to it in line with the particular features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its resources to one which needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the features of your package deal at their full potential at any time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it includes sufficient memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM that their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.

Even when you do not use the total capacity of the machine for an extended period of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server exclusively.
