Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and decrease the generated load immensely. Every time a web page on an app-powered site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific webpage. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any Internet site that attracts plenty of viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached object caching system with all website hosting that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a few clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part determines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for popular sites with very large databases and many visitors. Thus, you can optimize the speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers effortlessly.
