Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and reduce the created load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a certain webpage. If any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is an excellent option for every website that lures plenty of visitors, as it will make it super-fast and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached content caching system is offered as an upgrade with each and every cloud web hosting plan offered by us and you can begin using it once you order it, since the PHP extension that it needs in order to work correctly is already available on our innovative cloud platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes bundled with every shared web hosting plan and a brand-new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one shows the number of the sites which can use Memcached, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A busy Internet site with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any point with a few clicks.
