Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated server 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 displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a specific page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect solution for any site that has lots of viewers, since it will make it open faster and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

When you host script-powered websites in a web hosting account with us, you’ll be able to add the Memcached content caching system to your shared web hosting plan with only a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the PHP extension needed for it is already installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a large-size website with a lot of content, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can give you.
