Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your website and lessen the created server load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an application-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is a perfect solution for every Internet site that entices numerous viewers, since it will make it faster than the speed of light and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached object caching system with all shared website hosting plans
that we are offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can get with only a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the sites that you want to use it for. The first part reveals the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large databases and numerous concurrent visitors. In this way, you can improve the speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with ease.
