What precisely is Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than ordinary RAM and where can you get it?
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, which allows the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM a lot quicker than other types of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the information must be read to be able to access particular data. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory your web apps can use may not be fixed and may commonly depend upon the free memory that is available on the physical web server. With a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be at your disposal at all times and will never be allocated to other clients even if it's not in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS
All of our virtual private server
plans include a guaranteed amount of RAM. In other words, even in case you use a small fraction of the system resources that your package includes, we will not assign the free resources to some other VPS account on the very same physical web server. As we create only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to guarantee the adequate performance of all the VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded significantly at some time. In the event you also decide to upgrade your plan or to keep the active one and to add only more memory, the new amount shall also be reserved only for your account. In this way, we make sure that your Internet sites will function properly constantly no matter what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
If you buy one of our dedicated server
solutions, you shall get a top-notch server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. Because we test every single hardware component before we use it when we build a server, we'll ensure that the RAM sticks aren't faulty and that the machine runs flawlessly. The physical memory which you will get shall be available at all times, so even in times in which you utilize merely a part of it for any period of time, we shall never alter the configuration. You'll be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, in the billing Control Panel.
