RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed considerably quicker than a hard drive, as the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you shall be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to surf your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, since the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. If 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 some other clients on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated web server, alternatively, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a particular time.
