RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which enables the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM substantially faster than other sorts of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all the info has to be read in order to access particular info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may regularly depend on the free memory which is available on the physical server. When using a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be at your disposal at all times and will not be assigned to other customers even when it's not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
