RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored inside it. Whenever a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. With regards to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a given server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not in use.
