RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that permits the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM substantially faster than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the info has to be read so as to access particular information. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web applications can use can't be fixed and may commonly be determined by the free memory that's available on the physical machine. With a standalone web server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be at your disposal at all times and will never be allotted to other clients even if it's not used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
