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. This makes the RAM significantly quicker than other types of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all the information needs to be read so as to access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory that your web applications can use can't be fixed and may regularly rely upon the free memory that is available on the physical machine. Using a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be at your disposal at all times and shall not be allotted to other clients even if it isn't used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
