Learn just what ‘additional RAM’ means regarding dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and how you possibly can add more RAM to your server.
The more physical memory your Virtual Private Server has, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently. Some apps require lots of RAM even if nothing else is running on the server, even though they may not require high Central processing unit speeds or lots of disk space. If your hosting server runs out of memory, it'll stop responding and the sites and the offline programs you host on it shall not work effectively, as their software components won't load since there won't be any free memory. In this light, we offer a RAM upgrade for our VPS plans, so if you notice that your hosting server is close to the limit, you can take full advantage of this upgrade without upgrading the whole package and paying for system resources that you will not use. In this way, you'll be able to guarantee the proper functioning of your scripts and stop stressing that your website visitors shall see errors or will not be able to open your sites at all.
Additional RAM in VPS
More physical memory can be added to any one of the Linux VPS packages which we offer, including the top-end ones, so your websites will function flawlessly all of the time. The upgrade can be obtained both on the order page and inside the billing area, so you could add it anytime you require it: before your hosting server is ready - if you know that your sites will require additional memory, or after the server is working - if you notice that the supplied memory is not sufficient for all the websites to operate adequately. In the second case, the amount of RAM you acquire shall be added to the present configuration without any activity required on your end and without any VPS shutdown or restart, so there won't be any downtime for your websites. The upgrade is available in increments of 128 MB and you will be able to add as much memory as you'd like, because the physical servers have enough resources to enable the virtual servers to be upgraded significantly.
