RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, which enables the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM considerably faster than other types of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all the data has to be read so as to access certain info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web programs can use can't be fixed and may commonly depend upon the free memory that is available on the physical web server. With a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be at your disposal at all times and shall not be allotted to other customers even when it's not used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you choose to host your sites on a VPS server bought from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it will be guaranteed and shall be available all of the time no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient 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 at some point while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even temporarily. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your current account entirely. You shall be able to upgrade either the entire plan or only the server’s RAM with simply a few clicks inside the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need an effective website hosting solution for your sites and programs and you get one of the Linux dedicated web hosting plans we offer, you will have a massive amount of physical memory available at all times. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks extensively as well as all the other parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so in case you buy one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality server which will ensure fantastic performance for your sites. Even when you do not use the whole capacity of the web server for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your server only.
