RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM considerably quicker than other sorts of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all the info needs to be read in order to access specific data. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes depend on the free memory that's available on the physical server. When using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and will never be allocated to other clients even if it is not in use. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory which you will get with every VPS server we offer is guaranteed and will be at your disposal constantly even if you do not use it all for a long length of time. Every single VPS account features set system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from other accounts on the physical hosting server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we will never assign some of your memory to that account. We also never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to guarantee that it won't run out of memory. Thus, there shall always be free RAM if you want to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you buy one of our dedicated server packages, you'll get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Due to the fact that we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a web server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get will be available constantly, so even in a situation in which you use just a part of it for a period of time, we will never modify the configuration. You shall be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, within the billing Control Panel.
