RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which enables the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially quicker than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all of the info needs to be read to be able to access specific information. If you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory that your web apps can use can't be fixed and may frequently rely upon the free memory which is available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be for your use at all times and shall not be allotted to other customers even when it is not in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with every single dedicated server that we supply is large enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be available for your sites and any other software which 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 that you have ordered. All of the parts are tested before the server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you will get a flawlessly working machine that will ensure the best possible efficiency for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory which you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications in your billing CP.
