Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your site and reduce the produced server load greatly. Every time a page on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a particular page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that draws lots of visitors, as it will make it blazing-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-driven sites in a website hosting account with our company, you will be able to add Memcached to your plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the system memory that the Memcached caching system 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 permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a frequently visited site with a lot of data, you may need more memory to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.
