Memcached is an object caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and reduce the generated load considerably. Anytime a page on an application-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should appear on a particular web page. In case any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect solution for any Internet site that lures plenty of visitors, as it will boost its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

Memcached comes as an optional upgrade with each cloud web hosting plan that we are offering and if you would like to use it for any script-driven site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a few simple steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use to cache info, so for multiple sites (or for one single regularly visited site), you’d better order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be added at any time. With Memcached, every script-based site hosted on our cloud servers will load extra-fast.
