RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed considerably quicker than a hard drive, because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to check out your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a particular time.
