RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, that permits 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 like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the information must be read so that you can access certain data. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may regularly depend on the free memory that's available on the physical web server. Using a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and will not be allocated to other clients even when it is not in use. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you opt to host your websites on a VPS server acquired from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even if you use only a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire package or just the server’s RAM with only a couple of mouse clicks inside the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you shall get a top-notch machine with enough RAM to run even a variety of resource-demanding web apps with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Because we test each hardware component before we use it when we construct a server, we'll make certain that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the hosting server performs flawlessly. The physical memory you will get shall be available at all times, so even in times in which you employ only a part of it for any given 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 Control Panel.
