The more physical memory your Virtual Private Server has, the more programs you shall be able to run at the same time. Some apps require loads of RAM even when nothing else is running on the hosting server, even though they may not require high Processor speeds or loads of disk space. If your server runs out of memory, it will stop responding and the sites and the offline programs which you host on it shall not function adequately, as their software components won't load since there won't be any free memory. In this light, we offer a RAM upgrade for our Virtual private server plans, so if you discover that your machine is close to the limit, you can take full advantage of this upgrade without upgrading the whole plan and paying for resources that you will not use. That way, you can guarantee the proper functioning of your scripts and stop worrying that your site visitors will see errors or won't be able to open your sites at all.
Additional RAM in VPS Servers
You'll be able to add more RAM to your VPS servers regardless of the plan you have chosen, even if it's a high-end one. The upgrade is available in increments of 128 MB, so you'll be able to include as much RAM as you require at any given time, taking advantage of the flexibility of our system. The amount of memory that you order will be assigned to your existing virtual web server, so you won't need to do anything on your end. You shall not notice any downtime on your sites, as the VPS will not be shut down or restarted for the additional memory to be allocated to it. The upgrade may be ordered either throughout the signup procedure - in case you know in advance that you'll need it, or later through the billing area - in the event that you need it after you've begun using the hosting server. In either case, adding more physical memory takes only a few clicks and since all VPS accounts are set up on highly effective servers, there'll always be plenty of free memory to make certain that any one of the virtual hosting servers may be upgraded as much as needed at any given time.
