RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed noticeably faster than a hard drive, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to check out your Internet sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and can change according to what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM that will not be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.
