RAM, that is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, as the data is lost as soon as the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts may use may be limited and can change according to what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM that will not be used by others even if you do not use it at a given time.
