Hi,

what are the maximum allowed limits for upgrading memory and bandwidth? When would it be needed to move the account physically to another server?

I'm planning to have a significant increase of traffic during a one/two month period and was therefore planning to add quite a lot of memory and bandwidth, just to be one the safe side.

I'm also considering the use of additional servers for load balancing, but first I wanted to understand if I was able to accommodate the increased traffic with an upgrade server instance only.

Regards, D.

  • If you're on web417 or lower, then 512MB is the maximum amount of RAM that you can have.
  • If you're on a standard hosting plan on Web418 or higher, then you can have up to 1GB of RAM
  • If you need more than 1GB of RAM, then you can upgrade to a higher tier of hosting, but it requires that you move to a new server. See the upgrades page in the panel for more details.

For bandwidth, you can have up to double what the hosting plan provides, eg the standard plan has 600GB of monthly bandwidth, so you can upgrade that to up to 1200GB. If you need more than that, then you need to move up to the next tier (or add a second server at the same tier).
