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 info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an app is launched, it is stored within the RAM, as it could be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. With regards to the hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web apps can run concurrently on a particular web server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people at the same time. Not like a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a particular account could be flexible and frequently depend on what other end users consume as well, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use at all times. That memory is allotted to one server only and will not be used by other customers even if it's not being used.
