Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can increase the performance of your website and decrease the produced load significantly. Every time a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a specific web page. When any content is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every website that attracts a lot of visitors, as it will make it truly fast and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all web hosting that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for traffic-intensive sites with large databases and a lot of visitors. Thus, you can improve the overall performance of every script-based website hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.
