RAM, which is short for Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much faster than a hard drive, because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed data is reached. On a server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web programs once they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more programs you will be able to run at the same time and the more people will be able to check out your sites with no effect on the site’s/server’s general performance. Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for non permanent storage purposes, as the info is lost when the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts can use may be limited and could change according to what the some other clients on the same web server use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, however, you'll have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by anybody else even when you do not use it at a certain time.
