RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that permits the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly faster than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the data must be read in order to access particular info. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web applications can use can't be fixed and may frequently depend on the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be readily available at all times and will not be assigned to other clients even if it isn't being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
