Learn exactly what ‘additional RAM’ indicates with respect to dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and exactly how you'll be able to add extra RAM to your server.
The more physical memory your VPS has, the more apps you'll be able to run simultaneously. Some pieces of software require a lot of RAM even when nothing else is running on the web server, even though they might not require high Central processing unit speeds or a lot of disk space. If your hosting server runs out of memory, it will stop responding and the Internet sites and the offline apps which you host on it will not function properly, as their software components shall not 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 machine is close to the limit, you could make the most of this upgrade without upgrading the whole plan and paying for system resources that you won't use. In this way, you can ensure the proper functioning of your scripts and stop concerning that your website visitors shall see errors or will be unable to open your Internet sites at all.
Additional RAM in VPS Servers
You shall be able to add more RAM to your VPS servers
no matter the plan you have selected, even if it's a high-end one. The upgrade comes in increments of 128 MB, so you'll be able to add as much RAM as you need at any given time, taking advantage of the flexibility of our system. The amount of memory you order will be allocated to your existing virtual web server, so you will not need to do anything on your end. You'll not detect any downtime on your Internet sites, because the VPS shall not be shut down or restarted for the additional memory to be allocated to it. The upgrade may be ordered either during the signup process - provided you know in advance that you will need it, or later using the billing area - in the event that you need it after you have begun using the web server. Either way, adding more physical memory will take only a few clicks and because all VPS accounts are created on powerful machines, there shall always loads of free memory to ensure that any of the virtual servers could be upgraded as much as desired at any moment.
