Discover the distinction between normal and guaranteed RAM in the hosting world.
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that permits the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM considerably faster than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all the information must be read so that you can access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may often be determined by the free memory that's available on the physical server. With a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be at your disposal at all times and won't be allotted to other customers even if it isn't used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server which we provide is big enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and any other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use just a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration you have ordered. All of the parts are subjected to testing before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you shall get a flawlessly operating machine that can guarantee the best possible general performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
