RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially quicker than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all the information needs to be read so as to access certain information. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory that your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes rely upon the free memory which is available on the physical web server. When using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be readily available at all times and won't be assigned to other customers even when it is not used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you get a VPS server from us, you'll have a allocated amount of RAM at your disposal always. We create the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with plenty of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned completely to it as per the exact features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the functions of your package deal at their full capacity at any time. We create just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we make sure that it comes with enough memory to permit all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server we offer is big enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and any other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly functioning machine that will guarantee the best possible performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed with the full hosting server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
