How much RAM do I need for VPS?
As much as we can provide you with a cheap VPS in the UK, you also need to know the RAM needed for your VPS. However, available RAMs vary with users' preferred plans. Now, to answer the question of how much RAM you need for your VPS. There is no specific RAM for a particular user. Your choice should be based on the traffic rate you want to generate, the number of guests, and many others. We have IT professionals that will put you through the right measures when you subscribe to any of our VPS plans. More so, here are things you should consider when choosing RAM for your virtual private server.
- Your server traffic: For every guest who visits your website, your server uses RAM to process their request. Moreover, when your server RAM is almost used up, it slows down its speed and reduces performance. On average, VPS users receive visitors between 150,000-200,000 monthly. If your monthly guests fall within this range, you will need a minimum of 4GB RAM to run your VPS effectively.
- Type of service: Another thing to consider when choosing a RAM size for your VPS is the type of service you want to render. Are you hosting two or more server on your VPS, or you are operating a single server? For instance, some users run mail servers, databases, and web servers on a single machine. When your VPS RAM is too small to run the three servers together, the less used server is stored in the hard disk, while the machine picks it up again when it's needed. This process is called swapping, whereas swapping reduces server speed. Therefore, there should be adequate RAM for each server you are hosting on your VPS.
