Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and lessen the created server load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given web page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see outdated content. Memcached is an ideal option for any site that entices numerous viewers, since it will make it super-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a website hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached caching system to your web hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the needed extension is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a heavy-traffic website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
