RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed considerably quicker than a disk drive, as the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications once they are executed, so the more RAM you are able to use, the more programs you will be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to explore your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s overall performance. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for short-term storage purposes, as the information is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory that your scripts may use may be limited and can change depending on what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM which won't be used by anyone else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
