RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, in contrast to other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Each time an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, since it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work at the same time on a given hosting server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting solution in which the system resources of a certain account can be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is assigned to one server only and will not be used by other clients even if it's not used.
