RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a particular web server, especially when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting solution where the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and won't be used by other customers even when it is not being used.
