Discover the distinction between regular and guaranteed RAM in the web hosting world.
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that enables the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially faster than other types of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all the info has to be read in order to access certain data. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may regularly be determined by the free memory which is available on the physical machine. When using a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be for your use at all times and shall not be allocated to other customers even if it isn't used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server
bought from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using nearly all of its resources, we'll never allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. This is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account completely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with several mouse clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server
plans include a great deal of physical memory, which will allow you to run extremely heavy web applications with no difficulties. We use new and extensively tested hardware components when we build a new web server to ensure that there won't be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and when you get a dedicated server, we will make sure that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration you have selected. Even if we discover that you are not using the whole capacity of the web server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be readily available will always be the same. You can take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
