RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, allows the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever an application is started, it is stored in the RAM, since it can be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a certain hosting server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. In contrast to a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a certain account may be flexible and quite often depend on what other end users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and shall not be used by other customers even in case it is not used.
