RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to check out your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, since the information is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and could change depending on what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
