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. This makes the RAM substantially faster than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all of the info has to be read so as to access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may often be determined by the free memory that's available on the physical web server. With a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be available at all times and will never be allotted to other clients even if it is not being used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server plans include a set amount of RAM. To put it differently, even in case you use just a tiny fraction of the resources which your plan offers, we'll never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the correct functioning of all the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some time. If you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to incorporate just more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. That way, we make certain that your Internet sites will perform properly constantly regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test every single hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we shall ensure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available at all times, so even in a situation where you use merely a part of it for any period of time, we will never alter the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing CP.
