Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load substantially. Every time a page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific web page. If any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the website visitors will never see outdated content. The platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that attracts numerous visitors, since it will increase its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached object caching system to your shared hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension required for it is already installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory whenever you wish. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so if you’ve got a popular website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
