RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, that enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM a lot quicker than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all the information needs to be read to be able to access certain information. If you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web apps can use can't be fixed and may regularly depend upon the free memory that's available on the physical server. When using a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be at your disposal at all times and won't be allocated to other customers even when it's not being used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
If you opt to host your Internet sites on a virtual private server purchased from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful web servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory that comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even in case you use just a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we won't assign the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with simply a couple of mouse clicks within the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
If you get one of our dedicated server packages, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Since we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks aren't defective and that the web server works flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get will be available at all times, so even in times where you use just a part of it for a period of time, we will not alter the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM which you have, within the billing CP.
