RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably faster 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 may use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to look through your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for non permanent storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts can use may be limited and could change based upon what the other customers on the same server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.
