Discover the distinction between typical and guaranteed RAM in the hosting community.
RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you shall be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to surf your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the information is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you opt to host your websites on a VPS server
bought from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and will be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on powerful hosting servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using most of its resources, we won't allot the free RAM from your account even temporarily. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount will be added to your existing account fully. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or just the server’s RAM with only several clicks in the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server
that we offer you is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your sites and every other software which you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the system resources that you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All the parts are examined before the web server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly operating server that can ensure the best possible overall performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
