Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can increase the performance of your Internet site and lessen the created server load significantly. Every time a web page on an app-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a specific page. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never see outdated data. The platform is an ideal solution for any Internet site that entices lots of visitors, since it will increase its speed and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud website hosting account that we are offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a number 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 information, so for many sites (or for one traffic-consuming site), you should get more memory for better performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will load faster than the speed of light.
