Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately due to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the created server load tremendously. Every time a web page on an application-powered site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a certain page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old content. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for any Internet site that has a lot of viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of light and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux cloud packages that we are offering. It is available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the Internet sites that you wish to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve got, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for frequently visited websites with large databases and plenty of users. In this way, you can increase the speed of every script-based website hosted on our servers without effort.
