Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can improve the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced server load drastically. Every time a page on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a certain web page. When any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see old data. Memcached is an ideal solution for any Internet site that draws a lot of visitors, since it will make it faster than light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud hosting package offered by us and if you wish to use it for any script-based Internet site that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate features – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache content, so for numerous websites (or for one resource-absorbing site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be added at any moment. With Memcached, each script-powered site hosted on our cloud servers will open extremely fast.
