RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, which allows the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM a lot faster than other sorts of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all the data ought to be read so as to access certain data. When you have a shared hosting account, the exact amount of memory your web applications can use cannot be fixed and may regularly be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical web server. With a standalone hosting server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory which shall be available at all times and will not be assigned to other clients even when it's not in use. That's valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
