Understand precisely what ‘additional RAM’ means pertaining to dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and how you'll be able to add extra RAM to your server.
The more physical memory your VPS has, the more applications you'll be able to run concurrently. Some pieces of software require a lot of RAM even if nothing else is running on the web server, even though they might not demand high CPU speeds or lots of disk space. If your web server runs out of memory, it'll stop responding and the sites and the offline programs that you host on it will not function properly, as their software components will not load since there won't be any free memory. In this light, we offer a RAM upgrade for our Virtual private server plans, thus if you notice that your web server is close to the limit, you may take advantage of this upgrade without upgrading the whole package and paying for system resources which you won't use. This way, you can guarantee the proper operation of your scripts and stop worrying that your site visitors will see errors or will be unable to open your Internet sites at all.
Additional RAM in VPS
You'll be able to add more RAM to your virtual private servers regardless of the plan that you've picked, even if it's a high-end one. The upgrade is supplied in increments of 128 MB, so you shall be able to add as much RAM as you require at any time, taking advantage of the convenience of our system. The amount of memory you order will be assigned to your existing virtual server, so you won't have to do anything on your end. You'll not notice any downtime on your sites, since the VPS will not be shut down or rebooted for the additional memory to be assigned to it. The upgrade could be ordered either during the signup process - if you know in advance that you will need it, or later through the billing area - in case you need it after you've begun using the hosting server. In any case, adding more physical memory requires only a few clicks and because all VPS accounts are created on highly effective web servers, there shall always loads of free memory to make sure that any of the virtual web servers may be upgraded as much as desired at any given time.
