RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly quicker than other types of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all of the data needs to be read so as to access specific info. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may sometimes depend upon the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. When using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be available at all times and won't be allocated to other clients even if it is not being used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages include a set amount of RAM. In other words, even if you use only a small fraction of the resources which your plan includes, we will never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. As we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the correct operation of all the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. When you also opt to upgrade your package or to keep the present one and to include just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. Thus, we ensure that your sites will function effectively all the time whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server we offer you is large enough even for extremely resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your websites and all other software you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly functioning hosting server that can ensure the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
