RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM substantially quicker than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs where all of the data ought to be read so that you can access certain info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory your web applications can use can't be fixed and may sometimes depend on the free memory that's available on the physical server. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be for your use at all times and won't be allotted to other clients even if it's not being used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
