Discover the distinction between standard and guaranteed RAM in the website hosting community.
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially quicker than other types of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all of the info ought to be read in order to access particular data. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web apps can use may not be fixed and may often depend on the free memory which is available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be available at all times and shall not be assigned to other clients even if it isn't being used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All of our virtual private server
plans feature a set amount of RAM. To paraphrase, even if you use a tiny fraction of the resources your package deal features, we will never allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the same physical web server. As we create only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have sufficient free memory to secure the correct operation of the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded greatly at some time. When you also choose to upgrade your package deal or to keep the present one and to add just more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. This way, we make sure that your web sites will operate properly all the time regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server
which we provide is sufficient enough even for really resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be readily available for your Internet sites and every other software that you install on the hosting server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the hosting server is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you'll get a flawlessly operating web server that will ensure the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
