What exactly does ?additional RAM? imply? How do you assign extra RAM memory to your virtual or dedicated hosting server?
Whenever an app is executed on a web server, it's loaded into the physical memory. If you run a resource-demanding script, or if you simply add more scripts on your Internet sites and you get lots of visitors, you might encounter a case where your Virtual Private Server has not enough memory to run all the programs and freezes because of this, which means your websites shall stop functioning adequately and that the website visitors will start seeing error messages. To avoid this type of a scenario, you could take advantage of the RAM upgrade that we're offering and increase the amount of physical memory you can use without changing your entire plan. This way, you could pay only for the resources you actually need instead of for additional disk space or higher CPU speeds which you shall not really use, for instance. With the upgrade, you could ensure the faultless performance of your Internet sites, which also means a better experience for your visitors.
Additional RAM in VPS Servers
More physical memory can be added to any of the VPS servers that we offer, including the top-end ones, so your Internet sites shall work flawlessly constantly. The upgrade is available both on the order page and in the billing area, so you could add it anytime you require it: before your hosting server is prepared - provided you know your websites will require additional memory, or after the machine is up and running - if you notice that the provided memory isn't enough for all the sites to operate correctly. In the second case, the amount of RAM you order will be added to the existing configuration with no action required on your end and without any Virtual Private Server shutdown or reboot, so there will be no downtime for your websites. The upgrade is supplied in increments of 128 MB and you will be able to add as much memory as you would like, since the physical machines offer sufficient resources to permit the virtual servers to be upgraded considerably.
