RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly faster than other sorts of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all the data must be read so as to access specific information. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory your web programs can use may not be fixed and may commonly be determined by the free memory that's available on the physical hosting server. When using a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be at your disposal at all times and won't be allotted to other clients even if it is not used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
