RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that permits the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly 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 certain info. When you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may regularly depend on the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be readily available at all times and will not be assigned to other clients even if it isn't being used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
If you decide to host your sites on a virtual private server purchased from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use a little part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we'll never allocate the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account entirely. You will be able to upgrade either your entire plan or just the server’s RAM with a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you purchase one of our dedicated server packages, you will get a top-notch server with enough RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we assemble a server, we'll make sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the web server functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in times where you use merely a part of it for any period of time, we will not change the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, inside the billing Control Panel.
