Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and lessen the generated load substantially. Every time a page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent choice for every Internet site that draws lots of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a web hosting account with our company, you will be able to add the Memcached caching system to your shared hosting package with only a couple of clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a resource-absorbing site with lots of data, you may require more memory to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
