Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the produced server load considerably. Every time a page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then fetches 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 data is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing old content. Memcached is a perfect option for every website that draws plenty of viewers, as it will make it truly fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Website Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each and every shared website hosting package offered by our company and if you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our innovative cloud hosting platform, you will be able to add it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will get the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache content, so for lots of websites (or for one traffic-hungry site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any point. With Memcached, every script-driven Internet site hosted on our servers will open unbelievably fast.
