Understand just what ‘additional RAM’ means with regard to dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and just how you can add extra RAM to your server.
The more physical memory your VPS has, the more apps you will be able to run concurrently. Some apps require lots of RAM even when nothing else is running on the server, even though they might not require high CPU speeds or a lot of disk space. In the event your server runs out of memory, it shall stop responding and the sites and the offline applications that you host on it shall not work effectively, as their software components shall not load since there will not be any free memory. In this light, we offer a RAM upgrade for our VPS solutions, thus if you discover that your hosting server is close to the limit, you may make the most of this upgrade without upgrading the whole package and paying for resources which you won't use. That way, you can ensure the proper operation of your scripts and stop worrying that your visitors shall see errors or will not be able to open your Internet sites at all.
Additional RAM in VPS Hosting
Additional physical memory could be added to any of the VPS hosting
that we offer, including the top-end ones, therefore your websites will function flawlessly all of the time. The upgrade is available both on the order page and in the billing area, so you can add it when you need it: before your hosting server is prepared - in case you know that your websites will require additional memory, or after the server is up and running - in the event that you notice that the standard memory isn't enough for all the websites to work correctly. In the second case, the amount of RAM which you order will be added to the existing configuration with no action required on your end and without Virtual Private Server shutdown or reboot, so there will be no downtime for your websites. The upgrade is supplied in increments of 128 MB and you will be able to add as much memory as you need, since the physical machines provide enough system resources to allow the virtual servers to be upgraded considerably.
