What is the true main difference between the hosting industry-related terms ?regular RAM? and ?guaranteed RAM??
RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably faster than a disk drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, since the data is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Web Hosting
When you opt to host your websites on a virtual private server
bought from our company, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it will be guaranteed and will be available constantly no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory offered with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use only a part of it at some time while another VPS account is using nearly all of its system resources, we won't allocate the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the entire memory of the virtual server too - the additional amount will be added to your existing account entirely. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or just the server’s RAM with only several mouse clicks through the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each and every dedicated server
which we offer you is large enough even for really resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be available for your sites and any other software which you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are examined before the machine is assembled, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you shall get a flawlessly working machine that can guarantee the best possible general performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed together with the full web server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
