Memcached is an object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and decrease the produced load substantially. Every time a web page on an application-driven Internet site is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a given page. If any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every website that draws lots of visitors, since it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached object caching system with all hosting that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can activate with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first one reveals the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand sites with large-size databases and numerous concurrent visitors. Thus, you can accelerate the speed of any script-powered site hosted on our servers without effort.
