Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately thanks to its effectiveness. It’s used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your site and decrease the produced server load substantially. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven site is opened, the application 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 all the content that should show up on a given webpage. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. Memcached is a perfect solution for every site that attracts numerous viewers, since it will increase its loading speed and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared hosting plan offered by us and in case you would like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in several easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two different things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory caching system simultaneously, 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 able to use in order to cache information, so for multiple sites (or for one single large site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, every script-based website hosted on our servers will load unbelievably fast.
