RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that enables the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly faster than other types of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs where all the info ought to be read so that you can access particular information. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web applications can use may not be fixed and may frequently rely upon the free memory that is available on the physical web server. With a standalone web server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that shall be readily available at all times and will not be assigned to other customers even if it's not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
