RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Anytime a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, as it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can operate concurrently on a certain hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people concurrently. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allotted to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
