What is Guaranteed RAM? How is it different than standard RAM and where could you find it?
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM considerably quicker than other kinds of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the info must be read so as to access specific information. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may sometimes depend upon the free memory which is available on the physical web server. Using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be readily available at all times and will not be assigned to other customers even if it is not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your sites and applications and you get one of the dedicated servers
that we offer you, you'll have a massive amount of physical memory available all of the time. You'll be able to see the hardware configuration whenever you want through the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks diligently alongside all of the other parts before we use them to put together any server, so in case you get one of our plans, you will get a high-quality web server that will ensure fantastic overall performance for your websites. Even if you do not use the entire capacity of the machine for an extended length of time, the physical memory will still be available for your machine exclusively.
