What is the real 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 could be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, because the information 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 programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and may change according to what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you will have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
The physical memory you will get with each VPS server
that we offer you is guaranteed and shall be readily available all of the time even if you don't use all of it for a long period of time. Each and every VPS account offers you set system resources and runs in an isolated container apart from the rest of the accounts on the physical hosting server, so even when some account starts running out of memory, we won't allot some of your memory to that account. Additionally we never distribute the entire physical memory on the hardware node among the virtual accounts set up on it, so as to ensure that it won't ever run out of memory. That way, there'll always be free RAM if you decide to upgrade your package and we ensure the flawless performance of the physical hosting server.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
All our dedicated server
solutions feature a massive amount of physical memory, that will allow you to run very heavy web applications with no problems. We use brand new and meticulously tested hardware components when we install a new web server to make certain that there will not be any troubles of any type. The RAM memory is not an exception and if you obtain a dedicated server, we shall make certain that you get the best overall performance possible from the configuration which you have selected. Even if we identify that you aren't using the whole capacity of the hosting server, we will not modify the hardware in any way, so the amount of RAM which will be at your disposal will always be the same. You will be able to look at the configuration, including the physical memory, inside your billing Control Panel at any time.
