I have an Ubuntu Server with an 8GB hard drive, Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz, and 512MB of RAM. It will run fine unless I post a link to the webpage it is running on my social networks (Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace). The server locks up so I can't do anything but press and hold the power button to shut it down. Sometimes instead of the server locking up it will say that certain applications had to be closed because there is not enough memory. This is not only this system because I ran it on another computer and it did all the same things.
So what do you guys think the problem is? Do you think I need to get more RAM? Do you think I need to get a new server? Do you think it is my Internet connection?

Don't hard reboot like that. Memorise ALT+PrintScreen+R,E,I,S,U,B... with about 1-2 seconds between each key. It's the safer way to reboot when it crashes. Have you used memtest86 to test your memory? uname -a <-- what does that say?
