RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, which allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM noticeably quicker than other types of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs where all of the information must be read to be able to access specific info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web applications can use can't be fixed and may frequently rely upon the free memory which is available on the physical web server. When using a standalone hosting server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be at your disposal at all times and will not be allotted to other clients even if it's not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
