The more physical memory your VPS has, the more programs you shall be able to run simultaneously. Some pieces of software require loads of RAM even if nothing else is running on the server, even though they may not require high Processor speeds or a lot of disk space. If your server runs out of memory, it shall stop responding and the websites and the offline programs you host on it won't work properly, as their software components won't load since there will not be any free memory. In this light, we offer a RAM upgrade for our VPS plans, so if you detect that your server is close to the limit, you'll be able to take advantage of this upgrade without upgrading the whole package and paying for system resources which you won't use. This way, you'll be able to ensure the proper functioning of your scripts and stop worrying that your website visitors will see errors or will not be able to open your Internet sites at all.
Additional RAM in VPS Servers
You will be able to add more RAM to your VPS servers regardless of the plan that you have chosen, even if it's a high-end one. The upgrade is supplied in increments of 128 MB, so you shall be able to add as much RAM as you need at any moment, taking advantage of the convenience of our system. The amount of memory which you order shall be allocated to your existing virtual server, so you'll not have to carry out anything on your end. You will not detect any downtime on your sites, because the VPS shall not be switched off or restarted for the additional memory to be assigned to it. The upgrade may be ordered either during the signup process - in case you know in advance that you shall need it, or later through the billing area - in the event that you need it after you've begun using the server. In either case, adding more physical memory requires just a few clicks and since all VPS accounts are set up on powerful machines, there'll always be lots of free memory to make sure that any of the virtual web servers may be upgraded as much as needed at any given time.
