Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load greatly. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information 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 be shown on a certain webpage. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect solution for any website that lures lots of visitors, since it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
You can make use of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared web hosting packages that we offer. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can add with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first part indicates the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a very good idea for regularly visited websites with large databases and lots of users. In this way, you can increase the speed of any script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers with ease.
