RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which is accessed much more quickly than a hard disk drive, because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps after they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run concurrently and the more people will be able to browse your sites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, as the info is lost when the power is shut off. If you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts may use may be limited and could change according to what the other customers on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM that won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a given time.
