my VPS provider redstonehost.com basically told me today that I cant add my
own swap space because they call it Burst ram in their lingo and basically
tell me off for asking for trying to add swap space.

If i'm not mistaken swap space is where the stuff that isnt accessed but
still needs to be in ram gets stuffed right?
