Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and reduce the produced server load considerably. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a given webpage. When any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is a perfect choice for every website that lures numerous visitors, as it will make it faster than light and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each and every web hosting plan that we offer and if you would like to use it for any script-driven Internet site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be allowed to use in order to cache content, so for lots of websites (or for one single popular site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load extremely fast.
