RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, which allows the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM a lot faster than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all of the information must be read in order to access specific data. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory that your web apps can use can't be fixed and may regularly depend upon the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. When using a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be available at all times and won't be allotted to other customers even if it's not being used. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
