RAM, which refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which can be accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and can change according to what the other customers on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a given time.
