What is the real difference between the web hosting industry-related phrases ?regular RAM? and ?guaranteed RAM??
RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that could be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the info is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a particular time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you choose to host your websites on a VPS server
purchased from us, the amount of RAM that you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are created on efficient servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using virtually all of its system resources, we will not assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. This is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either your entire package or only the server’s RAM with only several mouse clicks in the billing Control Panel.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server
which we offer you is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory shall be readily available for your Internet sites and every other software which you install on the hosting server at all times, so even when at some point you use only a fraction of the resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are tested before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly performing hosting server that can guarantee the best possible performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
