Ad-hoc Testing : Without applying any testing techniques to derive testcases and conduct testing is called as ad-hoc testing.
random testing: randomly selecting some of the testcases from existing testcases for current execution is called as random testing(randomly selecting 25 testcaese from 100 existing teatcases)
Ad hoc testing is a commonly used term for software testing performed without planning and documentation (but can be applied to early scientific experimental studies).

The tests are intended to be run only once, unless a defect is discovered. Ad hoc testing is a part of exploratory testing,[citation needed] being the least formal of test methods. In this view, ad hoc testing has been criticized because it isn't structured, but this can also be a strength: important things can be found quickly. It is performed with improvisation, the tester seeks to find bugs with any means that seem appropriate. It contrasts to regression testing that looks for a specific issue with detailed reproduction steps, and a clear expected result. Ad hoc testing is most often used as a complement to other types of testing

Random testing is also known as Gorilla testing . In it we don't test the application sequentially, we just take the modules/fields randomly & perform testing whether it's functioning properly.

Hope this might help.
thank you.
Does the tester know about functionality of software under test in random ?? Or it is similar to exploratory testing?
Mostly Tester knows it.
Gorilla testing?!!!! the first time for me to hear about it!! i think ppl can't stop inventing names for testing techniques!!
