Memcached is a distributed memory object caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and replies between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and reduce the generated load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an application-powered site is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a particular web page. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an excellent solution for any Internet site that lures a lot of visitors, since it will make it super-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each hosting package that we offer and if you want to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our innovative cloud platform, you’ll be able to add it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a number of instances. The second one has to do with the maximum amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use in order to cache info, so for many sites (or for one frequently visited site), you should get more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, each script-powered website hosted on our servers will load faster than the speed of light.
