Discover the difference between regular and guaranteed RAM in the hosting world.
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that permits the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM considerably quicker than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs where all of the data needs to be read to be able to access certain info. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory that your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may commonly depend upon the free memory that's available on the physical machine. With a standalone server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be for your use at all times and shall not be assigned to other clients even when it is not being used. This is 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 will be guaranteed and will be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on efficient hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even in case you use a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even for the short term. This is valid if you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire plan or only the server’s RAM with just a couple of mouse clicks within the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your websites and applications and you get one of the Linux dedicated servers
that we offer you, you shall have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You will be able to look at the hardware configuration at any time through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We try out the memory sticks diligently as well as all of the other parts before we use them to build any server, so in case you buy one of our plans, you will get a high-quality hosting server which will guarantee remarkable functionality for your websites. Even in case you don't use the full capacity of the server for an extended length of time, the physical memory shall still be available for your hosting server exclusively.
