RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which allows the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM noticeably faster than other types of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all the info ought to be read in order to access particular information. If you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web applications can use can't be fixed and may regularly be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical machine. Using a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be at your disposal at all times and will never be assigned to other customers even if it is not in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
