RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which enables the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly quicker than other types of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the information needs to be read so as to access specific info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web apps can use may not be fixed and may frequently depend upon the free memory that is available on the physical server. Using a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be readily available at all times and won't be allotted to other customers even if it isn't being used. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
