Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and lessen the produced server load drastically. Anytime a web page on an application-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain web page. In case any content is edited, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never see old data. Memcached is an ideal choice for every website that lures numerous viewers, since it will make it faster than light and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can use the Memcached object caching system with all shared plans offered by our company. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can get with just a couple of clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is already installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-intensive sites with large-size databases and plenty of users. In this way, you can accelerate the overall performance of any script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
