RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a kind of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices such as hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Every time a program is launched, it is stored in the RAM, due to the fact that it could be accessed much quicker than if it was read from another media. In terms of the website hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can run at the same time on a given web server, especially when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Not like a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use all the time. That memory is allotted to one hosting server only and shall not be used by other clients even in case it is not being used.
