RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime an application is launched, it's stored in the RAM, since it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a particular server, particularly when they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people simultaneously. Different from a shared web hosting plan in which the system resources of a given account may be flexible and frequently depend on what other users consume too, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used always. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other customers even in case it is not in use.
