RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which may be accessed much faster than a disk drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you shall be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to surf your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, as the info is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and may change based upon what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a given time.
