Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your site and reduce the produced server load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a specific web page. When any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for every site that lures lots of visitors, as it will make it extra-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each website hosting package offered by our company and in case you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the system memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache content, so for many sites (or for one traffic-hungry site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any time. With the Memcached caching system, every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will load lightning-fast.
