RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, which, unlike other storage devices such as harddrives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content located within it. Anytime an app is started, it's stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web applications can work concurrently on a given web server, particularly if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large number of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting package where the system resources of a particular account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use at all times. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.
