Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and reduce the created load significantly. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see old content. The platform is an excellent solution for any website that draws numerous visitors, since it will make it load much faster and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your hosting plan with only a couple of clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory whenever you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a regularly visited site with a lot of content, you may require more memory so as to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can offer you.
