RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that permits the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM noticeably faster than other types of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the data must be read to be able to access specific info. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory your web applications can use may not be fixed and may commonly depend upon 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 that will be for your use at all times and will not be allotted to other clients even if it's not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
When you opt to host your websites on a virtual private server acquired from us, the amount of RAM that you will get with it will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory included with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a part of it ultimately while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we shall not assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount shall be added to your existing account permanently. You will be able to upgrade either the whole plan or only the server’s RAM with simply several mouse clicks within the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with each dedicated server we offer you is large enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be available for your websites and any other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are tested before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly working web server that can guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed together with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
