RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed noticeably faster than a disk drive, as the information 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 programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you'll be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to look through your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and can change based upon what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.
