RAM, that means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much more quickly than a hard disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you will be able to run all at once and the more people shall be able to explore your websites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost when the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and can change depending on what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, alternatively, you'll have a set amount of RAM which will not be used by others even when you do not use it at a given time.
