RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM substantially quicker than other types of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all the information has to be read to be able to access certain data. If you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may commonly depend on the free memory which is available on the physical hosting server. When using a standalone server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be readily available at all times and won't be allocated to other clients even if it's not used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server
plans include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use just a fraction of the resources which your package deal offers, we will never allot the free resources to some other VPS account on the same physical web server. Due to the fact that we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to secure the adequate operation of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially eventually. In the event you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the current one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. In this way, we make sure that your web sites will function correctly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated server
packages, you shall get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we shall make certain that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available at all times, so even in a situation where you use merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not change the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, inside the billing CP.
