RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more applications you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, as the data is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a certain time.
