Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the overall performance of your website and decrease the created server load drastically. Anytime a web page on an app-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be shown on a specific webpage. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is an excellent option for any Internet site that draws lots of visitors, since it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is offered as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud hosting that we are offering and you’ll be able to begin using it once you activate it, as the extension that it needs so as to run correctly is already available on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is offered with each and every hosting package and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the number of instances and the amount of memory, so as to offer you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use Memcached, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive website with a large-sized database may require more memory so as to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given point with a few mouse clicks.
