RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, that allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially faster than other sorts of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all the information has to be read to be able to access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web apps can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes depend on the free memory which is available on the physical machine. Using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be available at all times and will never be allotted to other clients even when it's not used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
All our virtual private server solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even when you use just a tiny fraction of the system resources your plan offers, we shall never allocate the free resources to some other VPS account on the exact same physical hosting server. Since we create just a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to guarantee the proper overall performance of the VPS accounts even if their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly eventually. If you also choose to upgrade your plan or to keep the present one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved just for your account. This way, we make certain that your websites will function properly at all times whatever the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
All of our dedicated server packages include a massive amount of physical memory, which will permit you to run really heavy web apps with no problems. We use new and thoroughly tested hardware components when we build a new server to make sure that there will not be any issues of any sort. The RAM memory isn't an exception and if you acquire a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have chosen. Even if we identify that you're not using the full capacity of the machine, we won't alter the hardware in any way, so the total amount of RAM which will be readily available shall always be the same. You can easily take a look at the configuration, including the physical memory, within your billing CP at any time.
