RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, which enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM considerably quicker than other sorts of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all of the info has to be read in order to access particular data. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web applications can use can't be fixed and may frequently rely upon the free memory that is available on the physical machine. Using a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and shall not be assigned to other customers even when it isn't being used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
