Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can enhance the overall performance of your Internet site and decrease the created load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should be displayed on a particular web page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The platform is an excellent solution for every Internet site that draws many viewers, since it will speed it up and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Web Hosting
Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting package that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud website hosting platform, you’ll be able to add it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will get the option to upgrade two different features – the instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number 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 plenty of sites (or for one traffic-intensive site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers will open blazing-fast.
