Memcached is a memory caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the app that uses it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-powered website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific web page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an ideal option for every website that entices plenty of visitors, since it will make it load much faster and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting
Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting package offered by us and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered website that you host on our innovative cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the websites that can use Memcached at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for multiple sites (or for one busy site), you’d better order more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, every script-powered Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open lightning-fast.
