RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM noticeably quicker than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all of the info ought to be read so that you can access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web applications can use can't be fixed and may frequently depend upon the free memory which is available on the physical machine. When using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be at your disposal at all times and shall not be assigned to other customers even if it isn't used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
The physical memory which you will get with each virtual private server that we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available consistently even when you do not use it for a long time period. Every VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall never assign some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to ensure that it will not run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless functioning of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we assemble a web server, we'll make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the hosting server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available at all times, so even in times where you utilize only a part of it for a period of time, we will not change the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
