Different from a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for temporary storage purposes, since the information is lost the moment the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory which your scripts could use may be limited and might change based upon what the some other clients on the same hosting server use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, alternatively, you shall have a fixed amount of RAM which won't be used by others even if you do not use it at a given time.
