RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, which allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM a lot faster than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all of the information has to be read so that you can access certain info. If you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may commonly be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical machine. When using a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be at your disposal at all times and will never be assigned to other clients even if it isn't used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
