Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your website and decrease the generated server load drastically. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain webpage. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is a perfect solution for any website that has lots of viewers, as it will make it super-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached data caching system to your shared web hosting package with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantaneously and, since the PHP extension needed for it is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, you can begin 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 system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you like. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a resource-requiring website with a lot of data, you may require more memory to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
