Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced load immensely. Anytime a web page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a given page. When any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is an excellent option for every website that draws a lot of visitors, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux cloud packages that we are offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with only a few clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the websites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for heavy-traffic websites with large-size databases and a lot of users. Thus, you can optimize the performance of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers without effort.
