RAM is an abbreviation for Random Access Memory. This is a sort of computer memory, that, different from other storage devices including hard disk drives or DVDs, allows the info to be accessed directly without reading the previous content saved inside it. Every time an app is started, it is stored inside the RAM, because it could be accessed considerably quicker than if it was read from another media device. In terms of the web hosting service itself, extra RAM means that more web applications can operate concurrently on a particular hosting server, especially if they're resource-demanding and are accessed by a significant number of people concurrently. In contrast to a shared web hosting package in which the system resources of a given account can be flexible and quite often depend on what other users consume also, a VPS offers a guaranteed amount of RAM which you can use always. That memory is assigned to one web server only and will not be used by other clients even when it is not used.

This is valid when you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your account completely. You'll be able to upgrade either the entire package or only the server’s RAM with just a few clicks within the billing Control Panel.
