Uncover the difference between typical and guaranteed RAM in the hosting world.
RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media which could be accessed much more quickly than a hard drive, simply because the info can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a web server, the RAM is used to load scripts and web applications when they are executed, so the more RAM you can use, the more apps you'll be able to run concurrently and the more people shall be able to browse your Internet 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, due to the fact that the data is lost once the power is shut off. When you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts are able to use may be limited and can change based upon what the some other clients on the same machine use. With a virtual or a dedicated server, on the other hand, you'll have a guaranteed amount of RAM that won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a certain time.
