RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, which enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM considerably quicker than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the data has to be read so as to access certain data. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may frequently be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. Using a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be for your use at all times and shall not be assigned to other clients even if it is not in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
