RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a hard drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you shall be able to run all at once and the more people will be able to surf your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and might change based on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a particular time.
