RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, permits the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Anytime an application is launched, it is stored inside the RAM, due to the fact that it can be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the web hosting service itself, additional RAM means that more web applications can work all at once on a given web server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people simultaneously. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the resources of a particular account can be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which can be used at all times. That memory is assigned to one server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it's not in use.
