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 considerably quicker than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all the information needs to be read in order to access certain data. If you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory which your web programs can use may not be fixed and may regularly depend upon the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be readily available at all times and will not be assigned to other clients even if it isn't being used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with every VPS server that we offer is guaranteed and shall be readily available at all times even when you do not use the whole thing for a long length of time. Every single VPS account offers fixed system resources and runs in an isolated container independently from the rest of the accounts on the physical web server, so even if some account starts running out of memory, we shall not assign some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the whole physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts created on it, as a way to ensure that it won't run out of memory. That way, there will always be free RAM if you wish to upgrade your package and we guarantee the flawless performance of the physical machine.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you acquire one of our dedicated server plans, you'll get a top-notch machine with sufficient RAM to run even multiple resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall performance of any one of them. Since we test every single hardware component before we use it when we set up a web server, we will make certain that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation where you utilize merely a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
