RAM, which stands for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably faster than a hard drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more applications you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to surf your Internet sites without effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for momentary storage purposes, as the info is lost once the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and could change based on what the some other clients on the same server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated web server, on the other hand, you will have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.
