Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and decrease the created server load greatly. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain page. When any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date data. Memcached is an excellent choice for any Internet site that lures many viewers, as it will make it astonishingly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached content caching system with all cloud web hosting plans that we are offering. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a good idea for regularly visited sites with very large databases and many concurrent visitors. Thus, you can enhance the speed of every script-powered site hosted on our servers effortlessly.
