RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, which enables the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM substantially quicker than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all the information ought to be read so as to access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may regularly be determined by the free memory which is available on the physical server. When using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and will not be allotted to other customers even if it isn't used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server packages feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use only a fraction of the system resources your plan offers, we will not allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. As we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have ample free memory to ensure the proper performance of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded substantially at some point. In the event you also opt to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we make sure that your websites will operate properly constantly whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server that we offer is large enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your Internet sites and every other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly working machine that can ensure the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
