RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that may be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, because 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 programs when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more applications you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s performance. In contrast to a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, since the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change based on what the other customers on the same hosting server use. With a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you'll have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even if you do not use it at a given time.
