Learn what ‘additional RAM’ means regarding dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and exactly how you'll be able to add additional RAM to your server.
Whenever an app is executed on a server, it is loaded into the physical memory. If you run a resource-demanding script, or if you just add more scripts on your websites and you get loads of visitors, you might encounter a scenario where your VPS has insufficient memory to run all the programs and freezes because of this, which means your websites will stop operating effectively and that the site visitors shall start seeing error messages. To avoid this kind of a scenario, you'll be able to take advantage of the RAM upgrade that we are offering and increase the amount of physical memory available without changing your entire plan. That way, you may pay only for the system resources which you actually need and not for additional disk space or higher CPU speeds which you will not really use, for example. With the upgrade, you'll be able to guarantee the flawless functioning of your websites, which also means a better experience for your site visitors.
Additional RAM in VPS
More physical memory could be added to any of the Linux VPS packages which we offer, including the top-end ones, therefore your sites shall work flawlessly constantly. The upgrade is offered 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 server is working - in the event that you notice that the default memory isn't sufficient for all the Internet sites to function effectively. In the second case, the amount of RAM that you obtain will be added to the current configuration with no activity required on your end and without any VPS shutdown or restart, so there will not be any downtime for your Internet sites. The upgrade is supplied in increments of 128 MB and you'll be able to include as much memory as you would like, because the physical hosting servers offer sufficient resources to permit the virtual servers to be upgraded considerably.
