RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, that permits the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM a lot faster than other sorts of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the info has to be read in order to access certain info. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes depend upon the free memory which is available on the physical web server. Using a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be readily available at all times and shall not be allocated to other customers even when it's not in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you opt to host your sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we'll never allot the free RAM from your account even momentarily. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with simply several clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server which we supply is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your websites and every other software you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources that you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the web server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly functioning server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
