RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a type of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices such as hard disk drives or DVDs, enables the data to be accessed directly without reading the previous content stored in it. Whenever an application is launched, it's stored within the RAM, as it can be accessed much faster than if it was read from another media device. With regards to the hosting service itself, more RAM means that more web apps can run at the same time on a given server, especially if they are resource-demanding and are accessed by a large amount of people all at once. Unlike a shared web hosting plan where the system resources of a certain account could be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume as well, a VPS features a guaranteed amount of RAM that can be used all the time. That memory is assigned to one server only and shall not be used by other clients even when it's not being used.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

We set up the VPS accounts on potent hardware nodes with no shortage of physical memory, so the moment a new virtual server is created, the RAM is allocated permanently to it in accordance with the specific features of the particular package deal. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that doesn't use all of its resources to one that requires more resources, so you shall be able to use the characteristics of your plan at their full capability at any time. We set up only several VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it has an adequate amount of memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM that their hosting servers are using without affecting the other accounts.
