RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly quicker than other types of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs where all of the info ought to be read in order to access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may commonly be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. Using a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be available at all times and will never be assigned to other customers even if it isn't being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
