Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your site and decrease the created server load immensely. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a particular page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every website that attracts many visitors, since it will make it ultra-fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux cloud website hosting that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can enable with only a couple of clicks of the mouse from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can get more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can optimize the overall performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without any efforts.
