RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to browse your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and could change depending on what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
