Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and lessen the created load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a certain page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent solution for any website that lures a lot of viewers, since it will speed it up and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all cloud hosting that we are offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you want to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for regularly visited websites with large-sized databases and lots of visitors. In this way, you can supercharge the performance of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without efforts.
