RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much more quickly than a disk drive, as the information 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 apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to check out your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, as the info is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts are able to use may be limited and might change depending on what the other customers on the same web server use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you will have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you don't use it at a given time.
