RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM a lot faster than other types of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all 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 applications can use can't be fixed and may regularly rely upon the free memory that is available on the physical machine. With a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be readily available at all times and shall not be assigned to other customers even if it's not in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
When you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on powerful servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its resources, we will not allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
If you get one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in a situation where you use merely a part of it for any given period of time, we will not change the configuration. You shall be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
