Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can increase the performance of your website and reduce the generated server load considerably. Every time a page on an application-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a specific page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date data. The platform is an ideal choice for any Internet site that draws many viewers, as it will make it load much faster and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
When you host script-powered websites in a shared website hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your plan with only a couple of clicks of the mouse through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required PHP extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can start using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can add as much memory 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 own a traffic-hungry site with lots of content, you may need more memory to be able to make the most of the power that Memcached can give you.
