Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated server load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular webpage. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date data. The platform is an excellent option for every Internet site that has many visitors, as it will make it load faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of Memcached with all cloud hosting offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for popular websites with very large databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can increase the overall performance of any script-powered website hosted on our servers without any effort.
