RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including harddrives or DVDs, enables the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Each time a program is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a certain web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and often depend on what other users consume too, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use all the time. That memory is allocated to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even in case it's not used.
