Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal choice for every Internet site that draws many viewers, as it will make it open faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached caching system with all web hosting offered by us. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large-sized databases and lots of users. In this way, you can enhance the performance of any script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
