RAM, which means Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed considerably quicker than a hard disk, due to the fact that the information can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed info is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications after they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people shall be able to surf your sites without effect on the site’s/server’s performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is employed for short-term storage purposes, since the information is lost as soon as the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts are able to use may be limited and may change according to what the some other clients on the same machine use. Through a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, however, you'll have a set amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you don't use it at a particular time.

All the components are tested before the server is constructed, including the RAM sticks, to guarantee that you'll get a flawlessly functioning machine that will guarantee the best possible overall performance for your Internet sites. The amount of physical memory that you have will be listed with the full web server configuration specifications inside your billing Control Panel.
