What exactly is the true difference between the hosting industry-related phrases ?regular RAM? and ?guaranteed RAM??
RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located in it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, since it can be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run concurrently on a given hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a given account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one web server only and shall not be used by other clients even if it is not used.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers Hosting
The amount of RAM included with each dedicated server which we provide is big enough even for quite resource-demanding web programs. The memory shall be readily available for your sites and every other software which you install on the server at all times, so even if at some point you use only a fraction of the system resources you have, we shall never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the parts are examined before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to ensure that you'll get a flawlessly performing machine that can guarantee the best possible performance for your websites. The amount of physical memory you have shall be listed along with the full hosting server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
