RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, that enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM substantially faster than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all of the data has to be read so as to access specific data. If you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web apps can use cannot be fixed and may commonly be determined by the free memory which is available on the physical web server. When using a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be at your disposal at all times and shall not be allocated to other customers even if it is not in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with each VPS server which we offer is guaranteed and shall be readily available consistently even if you do not use it for a long period of time. Every VPS account features fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from all the other accounts on the physical machine, so even in case some account starts running out of memory, we shall never allocate some of your memory to that account. Also we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, to ensure that it will not run out of memory. This way, there'll always be free RAM if you choose to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless functioning of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch web server with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs without any effect on the overall efficiency of any of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we set up a hosting server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks aren't malfunctioning and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory you will get will be available all of the time, so even in times in which you utilize only a part of it for any period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You'll be able to take a look at the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing CP.
