RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, that allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly faster than other types of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all the data ought to be read in order to access specific information. In case you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory that your web programs can use can't be fixed and may regularly depend on the free memory that is available on the physical server. When using a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and will never be assigned to other customers even if it isn't used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
