What precisely is Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than ordinary RAM and where could you get it?
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly faster than other types of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the data has to be read in order to access certain information. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical server. With a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be at your disposal at all times and shall not be allocated to other clients even when it isn't used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every single dedicated server
that we offer is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your sites and any software you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use a fraction of the system resources you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All the components are examined before the machine is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you will get a flawlessly performing web server that can guarantee the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
