We’re excited to announce that we have doubled the memory on our base plan without changing the price: the memory quota is now 512MB instead of 256MB and the price is still $9.50/mo (or $8.50/mo if you pre-pay for one year). All existing accounts have been upgraded to the new quota.

The memory used by the operating system, web server and database servers still doesn’t count towards your memory usage.

Customers on Web418 and over can also purchase an extra 512MB of memory (for a total of 1GB) for $7/mo. Unfortunately customers on Web417 and under are still limited to 512MB of memory per account per server as these machines don’t have enough RAM to accommodate more than that. If you’re on Web417 and under and want more than 512MB of memory you can request a migration in the control panel under “Account->Server migration”.

We have also doubled the memory on our larger plans and you can now get a 2GB plan, 4GB plan or 8GB plan for $40/mo, $80/mo and $160/mo respectively (discounts apply for yearly pre-payments). See the “Account->Upgrade / downgrade” screen in the control panel for details.

Enjoy the extra memory!
