RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM noticeably quicker than other sorts of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the info has to be read to be able to access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may often rely upon the free memory which is available on the physical server. Using a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and will not be allocated to other customers even when it's not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each VPS server that we offer is guaranteed and will be readily available always even if you do not use it for a long period of time. Each VPS account offers set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allocate some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to make sure that it will not run out of memory. Thus, there will always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless overall performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server which we offer is large enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be readily available for your sites and any other software that you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly functioning machine that can ensure the best possible performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed together with the full server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
