Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated server load greatly. Anytime a web page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a particular webpage. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. Memcached is an excellent solution for any website that draws lots of visitors, since it will make it load faster and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting package offered by our company and if you wish to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to enable it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached content caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several websites, you can get a number of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache info, so for many sites (or for one single resource-requiring site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our servers will load extremely fast.
