RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, which, different from other storage devices like hard disks or DVDs, enables the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located inside it. Whenever an app is started, it's stored within the RAM, due to the fact that it may be accessed considerably faster than if it was read from another media device. With regard to the website hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can work concurrently on a given web server, particularly if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people simultaneously. Not like a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a given account could be flexible and sometimes depend on what other users consume also, a VPS includes a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one hosting server only and won't be used by other clients even in case it is not used.
