RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster than a hard disk drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to surf your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, since the data is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and may change depending on what the some other clients on the same web server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you shall have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
