What is the real main difference between the web hosting industry-related terms ?regular RAM? and ?guaranteed RAM??
RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much more quickly than a disk drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, as the data is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and could change based on what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
If you choose to host your websites on a VPS server
acquired from us, the amount of RAM which you'll get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available always no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers and when your virtual server is set up, the RAM memory which comes with the particular plan will be "locked", so even if you use only a part of it at some point while another VPS account is using most of its system resources, we'll never allot the free RAM from your account even for the short term. That is valid when you upgrade the whole memory of the virtual server as well - the extra amount shall be added to your current account permanently. You shall be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with just several mouse clicks in the billing CP.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM included with every dedicated server
we supply is big enough even for extremely resource-demanding web programs. The memory will be available for your Internet sites and all other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All the components are tested before the machine is built, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you will get a flawlessly working hosting server that will ensure the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory which you have will be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
