Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can enhance the performance of your Internet site and decrease the produced server load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an application-driven website is visited, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a certain web page. If any data is changed, the Memcached content is updated too, so the users will never see outdated data. Memcached is an excellent choice for every Internet site that draws many visitors, since it will boost its speed and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux shared hosting packages that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can enable with only a few clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the websites that you want to use it for. The first part defines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a very good idea for busy websites with large-size databases and numerous users. Thus, you can improve the loading speed of every script-driven Internet site hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
