Learn exactly what ‘additional RAM’ means with regard to dedicated servers and Virtual Private Servers and in what ways you'll be able to add additional RAM to your server.
In case you use a Virtual Private Server for online and offline applications, you might come across a situation where they don't operate properly as a result of lack of physical memory. This may take place if you try to run an app that requires additional RAM than the amount your plan provides, or in the event that you have too many programs and some of them consume all of the memory, leaving no free RAM for the others. Even if you get a powerful package deal, this could happen if you add more programs on the server at some point, and since it is possible that you shall need just more physical memory, but not higher CPU speeds or more disk space, we offer a RAM upgrade which you may use without changing your entire plan. That way, you can pay only for the resources that you need and you shall be able to avoid errors on your sites caused by insufficient memory and the inability of the VPS to load the apps.
Additional RAM in VPS Servers
Additional physical memory may be added to any of the VPS servers we offer, including the top-end ones, therefore your sites will function flawlessly at all times. The upgrade is offered both on the order page and inside the billing area, so you may add it when you require it: before your hosting server is prepared - if you know your sites will require more memory, or after the machine is working - in the event that you notice that the supplied memory isn't sufficient for all the sites to operate correctly. In the second situation, the amount of RAM that you obtain shall be added to the present configuration with no action required on your end and without 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 will be able to include as much memory as you'd like, due to the fact that the physical machines have enough system resources to allow the virtual servers to be upgraded substantially.
