Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load significantly. Anytime 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, since the platform has already cached all the content that should show up on a specific page. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent option for every site that attracts many viewers, as it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached distributed memory caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting packages that we’re offering. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can get with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you wish to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for heavy-traffic websites with very large databases and many simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can optimize the overall performance of any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers with ease.
