RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like harddrives or DVDs, permits the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved within it. Each time an app is started, it's stored inside the RAM, because it could be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given hosting server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Unlike a shared web hosting package in which the resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used at all times. That memory is allocated to one server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
