Uncover the distinction between regular and guaranteed RAM in the website hosting world.
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. This makes the RAM considerably faster than other types of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all of the information has to be read to be able to access certain data. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may frequently be determined by the free memory which is available on the physical web server. With a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be available at all times and won't be allocated to other clients even when it isn't in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All of our VPS server
solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even when you use just a fraction of the resources which your package deal comes with, we shall never assign the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical server. Since we set up just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to guarantee the proper functioning of the VPS accounts even in case that their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some point. If you also decide to upgrade your package deal or to keep the latest one and to incorporate only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved exclusively for your account. This way, we ensure that your Internet sites will function effectively constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All of our dedicated server
plans include a massive amount of physical memory, which will allow you to run really heavy web applications with no issues. We use brand-new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new server to guarantee that there will never be any troubles of any sort. The RAM memory is not an exception and when you acquire a dedicated server, we'll ensure that you get the best general performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we discover that you're not using the entire capacity of the hosting server, we shall not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM that'll be readily available shall always be the same. You can check the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
