RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, that allows the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM significantly faster than other kinds of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs where all the data must be read so that you can access particular data. If you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory that your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may frequently depend on the free memory that's available on the physical server. With a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and will never be allocated to other clients even when it is not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
