RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed much quicker than a hard disk, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will 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 general performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, because the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and could change depending on what the other customers on the same server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a particular time.
