RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to browse your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, due to the fact that the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts could use may be limited and can change based on what the some other clients on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM that will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a certain time.
