Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated load immensely. Every time a webpage on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a given webpage. When any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The platform is a perfect option for every site that attracts numerous viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting package that we offer and if you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache data, so for lots of websites (or for one single busy site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any time. With Memcached, any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open faster than the speed of light.
