Learn just what exactly ‘additional RAM’ indicates regarding dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and exactly how you can add extra RAM to your server.
Whenever an app is executed on a web server, it is loaded into the physical memory. In the event that you run a resource-demanding script, or if you simply add more scripts on your Internet sites and you get lots of visitors, you could encounter a scenario where your VPS has not enough memory to run all the applications and freezes for that reason, which means that your Internet sites shall stop operating properly and that the website visitors shall start seeing error messages. To avoid this sort of a scenario, you can take advantage of the RAM upgrade that we are offering and increase the amount of physical memory for your use without changing the whole plan. In this way, you could pay only for the system resources which you actually need and not for additional disk space or higher Central processing unit speeds that you will not really use, for example. With the upgrade, you can ensure the flawless performance of your Internet sites, which also means a better experience for your visitors.
Additional RAM in VPS Servers
Additional physical memory may be added to any one of the VPS hosting plans
that we offer, including the top-end ones, therefore your sites will function perfectly constantly. The upgrade can be obtained both on the order page and in the billing area, so you may add it when you need it: before your server is prepared - provided you know that your websites will require additional memory, or after the machine is operational - in case you notice that the supplied memory isn't enough for all the sites to work effectively. In the second situation, the amount of RAM which you order will be added to the existing configuration with no action required on your end and without any Virtual Private Server shutdown or restart, so there won't be any downtime for your Internet sites. The upgrade is supplied in increments of 128 MB and you will be able to add as much memory as you require, because the physical servers offer enough resources to enable the virtual servers to be upgraded significantly.
