RAM, that stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, due to the fact that the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a web server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more apps you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to check out your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, due to the fact that the info is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts can use may be limited and might change based on what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you will have a set amount of RAM that won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a given time.
