Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load substantially. Anytime a web page on an app-driven website is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a given page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for every site that attracts numerous visitors, as it will boost its speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with every Linux cloud website hosting that we are offering and you’ll be able to start using it once you enable it, as the extension that it needs in order to work correctly is already present on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes bundled with every web hosting package and a new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites that can use Memcached, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, specifies the total size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive site with a very large database may need more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any time with a couple of mouse clicks.
