RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, that allows the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM a lot faster than other types of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all of the information has to be read in order to access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may regularly depend on the free memory that is available on the physical machine. When using a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be for your use at all times and won't be assigned to other clients even if it's not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you decide to host your websites on a virtual private server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a little part of it at one point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the extra amount will be added to your account fully. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with only several clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and any software that you install on the server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly functioning server that will guarantee the best possible performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
