RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, that enables the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly quicker than other sorts of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all of the information must be read so as to access certain info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory your web apps can use may not be fixed and may commonly depend on the free memory which is available on the physical hosting server. Using a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be at your disposal at all times and won't be assigned to other customers even if it's not being used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
