RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, unlike other storage devices including hard disks or DVDs, permits the information to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored within it. Every time an application is launched, it is stored in the RAM, because it may be accessed much more quickly than if it was read from another media. In terms of the web hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can operate simultaneously on a certain hosting server, particularly when they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a great number of of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting solution where the resources of a particular account may be flexible and often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS provides a guaranteed amount of RAM you can use always. That memory is allocated to one hosting server only and will not be used by other customers even when it is not used.
