Memcached is a caching system, which has been gaining popularity lately because of its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can improve the performance of your website and lessen the generated load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a particular page. If any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. Memcached is an ideal choice for every site that entices a lot of visitors, as it will make it faster than light and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

The Memcached content caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud web hosting offered by us and you’ll be able to start using it the moment you add it, since the extension that it requires in order to run properly is already installed on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which is included with every web hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will appear. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more flexibility. The first one shows the number of the sites that can use Memcached, while the second, which comes in increments of 16 megabytes, determines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A traffic-heavy website with a large-sized database may require more memory so as to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so if you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a few mouse clicks.
