RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that permits the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly quicker than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all of the information ought to be read in order to access particular data. In case you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web apps can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes depend on the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. Using a standalone web 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 web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you decide to host your websites on a VPS server bought from us, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use only a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using almost all of its resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or just the server’s RAM with a few clicks through the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server which we offer is big enough even for very resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your websites and any software which you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly performing hosting server that will ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
