Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that’s using it, which can boost the performance of your site and decrease the produced load immensely. Anytime a web page on an app-powered website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular web page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never end up seeing outdated content. The Memcached platform is an ideal option for any site that has many viewers, since it will make it load faster and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Hosting

The Memcached object caching system comes as an upgrade with each hosting that we are offering and you can begin using it as soon as you add it, since the extension that it requires so as to function properly is pre-installed on our innovative cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with each and every hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the instances and the amount of memory, so as to give 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, specifies the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive website with a large-sized database may need more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you need to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given time with a few clicks.
