Understand what ‘additional RAM’ means regarding dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and in what ways you possibly can add additional RAM to your server.
Whenever a program is executed on a server, it is loaded into the physical memory. In the event that you run a resource-demanding script, or if you just add more scripts on your sites and you get loads of visitors, you could encounter a scenario where your Virtual Private Server has too little memory to run all the programs and freezes for that reason, which means your sites will stop operating effectively and that the visitors shall start seeing error messages. To avoid this kind of a scenario, you may take advantage of the RAM upgrade that we're offering and increase the amount of physical memory at your disposal without changing the whole plan. That way, you could pay just for the system resources which you actually need instead of for additional disk space or higher Processor speeds that you will not really use, for example. With the upgrade, you'll be able to ensure the faultless performance of your Internet sites, which also means a better experience for your site visitors.
Additional RAM in VPS Web Hosting
More physical memory could be added to any one of the Linux VPS web hosting packages we offer, including the top-end ones, so your sites will function flawlessly all of the time. The upgrade is available both on the order page and inside the billing area, so you can add it when you require it: before your hosting server is ready - provided you know your websites will require more memory, or after the server is functioning - in the event that you notice that the supplied memory is not enough for all the websites to function effectively. In the second case, the amount of RAM that you obtain will be added to the existing configuration with no action required on your end and without Virtual Private Server shutdown or reboot, so there won't be any downtime for your Internet sites. The upgrade is available in increments of 128 MB and you will be able to add as much memory as you need, simply because the physical machines have enough resources to permit the virtual servers to be upgraded tremendously.
