RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed considerably faster than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to explore your websites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, as the data is lost when 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 can change depending on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.
