What precisely the actual difference between the hosting industry-related terms ?regular RAM? and ?guaranteed RAM??
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that permits the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM considerably faster than other sorts of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all of the data must be read in order to access certain data. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web programs can use may not be fixed and may commonly depend on the free memory that's available on the physical machine. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be for your use at all times and shall not be assigned to other customers even when it isn't in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
If you get a virtual private server
from us, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM available all the time. We set up the VPS accounts on effective hardware nodes with a lot of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is allotted permanently to it in accordance with the particular features of the selected plan. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS which doesn't use all of its system resources to one which requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the functions of your plan at their full capability all of the time. We set up just a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has an adequate amount of memory to allow all the clients on it to upgrade the RAM their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
If you purchase one of our dedicated server
packages, you'll get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web applications without any effect on the overall performance of any of them. Due to the fact that we test each hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we shall make perfectly sure that the RAM sticks are not defective and that the machine performs flawlessly. The physical memory that you will get will be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you employ only a part of it for any given period of time, we will not modify the configuration. You'll be able to check out the hardware, including the amount of RAM you have, within the billing Control Panel.
