RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, that permits the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly quicker than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all of the information must be read so as to access specific info. If you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web apps can use can't be fixed and may frequently be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical machine. With a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be for your use at all times and will never be assigned to other clients even if it isn't used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with every single VPS server which we provide is guaranteed and will be at your disposal consistently even if you do not use it all for a long length of time. Every VPS account offers you fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container separately from all the other accounts on the physical web server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allocate some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts established on it, in order to ensure that it will never run out of memory. This way, there will always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless operation of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server that we offer you is large enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and every other software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the components are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly functioning server that can ensure the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
