RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that enables the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly quicker than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the info has to be read so that you can access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory which your web programs can use may not be fixed and may frequently depend upon the free memory that's available on the physical web server. Using a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be readily available at all times and shall not be assigned to other customers even if it is not in use. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
