RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, which allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM noticeably faster than other kinds of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the information ought to be read in order to access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web apps can use can't be fixed and may regularly be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be available at all times and will not be allocated to other customers even when it's not being used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with every single VPS server
that we offer is guaranteed and will be available always even when you do not use all of it for a long period of time. Every VPS account gives you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Furthermore never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, as a way to ensure that it won't run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical web server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you get one of our dedicated server
plans, you shall get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a server, we shall make sure that the RAM sticks are not faulty and that the machine performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available all of the time, so even in a situation in which you use just a part of it for any period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You'll be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing CP.
