RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, as the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to explore your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
