RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a sort of computer data storage, which enables the data to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM a lot quicker than other kinds of storage devices like DVDs or HDDs where all the data needs to be read so that you can access particular information. When you have a shared hosting account, the total amount of memory your web apps can use cannot be fixed and may commonly be determined by the free memory that's available on the physical server. With a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be for your use at all times and won't be allocated to other clients even when it is not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated servers.
