What's Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than ordinary RAM and where could you find 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. This makes the RAM a lot faster than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the info must be read so as to access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory your web apps can use may not be fixed and may commonly be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be available at all times and shall not be allocated to other customers even if it is not in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server we supply is sufficient enough even for quite resource-demanding web apps. The memory will be available for your sites and every other software you install on the hosting server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources which you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the parts are tested before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you shall get a flawlessly working machine that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed along with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing CP.
