RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which enables the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM a lot quicker than other kinds of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs where all the data must be read so as to access specific information. In case you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory which your web programs can use can't be fixed and may commonly be determined by 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 that shall be for your use at all times and shall not be allotted to other customers even if it is not used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
