Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load drastically. Every time a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain web page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old content. The platform is a perfect solution for any site that entices numerous visitors, since it will accelerate it and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a few clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our innovative cloud platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can add memory as many times as you want. Logically, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you manage a resource-consuming website with a lot of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
