What exactly is the true main difference between the hosting industry-related terms ?regular RAM? and ?guaranteed RAM??
RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a disk drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to look through your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, because the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and could change according to what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even if you don't use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
All our VPS server
solutions come with a guaranteed amount of RAM. Put simply, even when you use only a fraction of the resources your package deal offers, we shall never allocate the free resources to a different VPS account on the very same physical web server. As we set up only a few virtual servers on a physical one, the latter will always have ample free memory to secure the appropriate functioning of all VPS accounts even when their RAM allocation is upgraded tremendously at some point. When you also decide to upgrade your package or to keep the latest one and to add only more memory, the new amount will also be reserved exclusively for your account. Thus, we make sure that your sites will function effectively at all times regardless of what the other VPS accounts are using.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
When you need a potent website hosting solution for your sites and applications and you acquire one of the dedicated servers
we offer, you shall have a massive amount of physical memory available at all times. You shall be able to see the hardware configuration at any time through the billing CP, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks extensively as well as all of the other parts before we use them to assemble any machine, so if you get one of our plans, you shall get a high-quality server which will ensure superb general performance for your Internet sites. Even if you don't use the entire capacity of the machine for an extended time period, the physical memory shall still be available for your server exclusively.
