RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which enables the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM noticeably faster than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all of the information needs to be read in order to access certain data. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may frequently be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical machine. When using a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be for your use at all times and shall not be allotted to other clients even if it isn't in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server solutions include a guaranteed amount of RAM. To put it differently, even if you use a tiny fraction of the resources which your plan comes with, we shall never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the same physical web server. Since we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have sufficient free memory to secure the correct operation of all VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded drastically at some point. In the event you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. That way, we ensure that your web sites will function effectively constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Because we test every hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we will make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available all of the time, so even in times where you employ merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
