RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that can be accessed noticeably faster than a hard disk, simply because the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people shall be able to look through your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for temporary storage purposes, as the information is lost once 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 might change based upon what the some other clients on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which will not be used by anybody else even if you do not use it at a given time.
