What precisely is Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than standard RAM and where could you get it?
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially faster than other types of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all the information ought to be read so as to access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory that your web apps can use may not be fixed and may often depend on the free memory which is available on the physical web server. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be at your disposal at all times and will never be allocated to other clients even if it's not being used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Hosting
When you get one of our dedicated server
packages, you shall get a top-notch web server with sufficient RAM to run even a number of resource-demanding web apps without any effect on the overall functionality of any one of them. As we test every hardware component before we use it when we build a hosting server, we will make sure that the RAM sticks are not malfunctioning and that the server works flawlessly. The physical memory that you'll get shall be available all the time, so even in a situation in which you use just a part of it for any given period of time, we shall never modify the configuration. You will be able to check the hardware, including the amount of RAM that you have, in the billing CP.
