RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a form of computer data storage, that enables the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM substantially faster than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs in which all of the data needs to be read so that you can access particular information. If you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory that your web applications can use may not be fixed and may frequently depend on the free memory that is available on the physical hosting server. With a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which will be at your disposal at all times and will not be allotted to other clients even when it is not in use. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated hosting servers.
