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. That makes the RAM noticeably faster than other sorts of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the info ought to be read in order to access certain information. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web applications can use may not be fixed and may often be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. Using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be available at all times and won't be assigned to other clients even when it is not in use. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
