You need to make sure that your website is well optimised:

  • Remove any plugins that are not being used
  • Try to reduce the number of requests that you have for each page
  • Use good website and server caching
  • Maybe implement a CDN solution as well

Of course adding some additional RAM might still be beneficial.

Those are just some basic suggestions.
