What exactly is Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than regular RAM and where can you find it?
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that enables the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially faster than other kinds of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the info has to be read to be able to access particular info. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may regularly rely upon the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. Using a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be at your disposal at all times and won't be allotted to other customers even when it is not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Hosting
All of our virtual private server
solutions feature a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even when you use only a small fraction of the resources that your plan includes, we will never allocate the free resources to another VPS account on the very same physical server. Due to the fact that we set up only several virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will have plenty of free memory to ensure the proper functioning of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly eventually. In the event you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to include only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved only for your account. This way, we make sure that your sites will function properly at all times no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
When you acquire one of our dedicated server
packages, you'll get a top-notch hosting server with enough RAM to run even several resource-demanding web programs with no effect on the overall efficiency of any one of them. Since we test each hardware component before we use it when we assemble a server, we will ensure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the machine functions flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available constantly, so even in times where you utilize just a part of it for a period of time, we will never alter the configuration. You will be able to examine the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
