RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media. With regards to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a particular web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other customers even if it's not used.
