RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that permits the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM significantly quicker than other sorts of storage devices such as DVDs or HDDs in which all the information must be read to be able to access specific info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory which your web programs can use cannot be fixed and may frequently depend on the free memory which is available on the physical server. With a standalone server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and shall not be allotted to other clients even if it is not in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
