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 a lot faster than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all the information ought to be read to be able to access certain info. When you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web applications can use can't be fixed and may often rely upon the free memory that's available on the physical web server. Using a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be at your disposal at all times and won't be allocated to other customers even if it isn't in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
