Memcached is a data caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and replies between a database and the application that uses it, which can boost the performance of your site and decrease the produced server load substantially. Every time a webpage on an app-powered site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a certain webpage. In case any content is changed, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is an excellent solution for any site that draws numerous viewers, as it will increase its loading speed and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached distributed memory caching system comes as an upgrade with each and every Linux hosting plan that we are offering and you will be able to begin using it the moment you order it, since the extension that it requires in order to work correctly is already installed on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with each and every web hosting plan and a brand new section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the amount of system memory, so as to offer you more freedom. The first one shows the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which is available in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A regularly visited site with a large-sized database may need more memory in order to take an even greater advantage of Memcached, so if you would like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with a few clicks.
