RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which allows the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM considerably quicker than other types of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the info needs to be read to be able to access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may commonly rely upon the free memory that is available on the physical server. With a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be for your use at all times and will never be assigned to other customers even when it isn't in use. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with every single VPS server that we provide is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even if you don't use it for a long period of time. Every VPS account provides set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we will never allot some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to make sure that it won't run out of memory. In this way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server which we offer you is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and any other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources that you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly operating server that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
