Memcached is a data caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years thanks to its efficiency. It is used to cache queries and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your website and reduce the generated server load drastically. Anytime a page on an app-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all the content that should be displayed on a given page. If any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never see out-of-date content. The Memcached platform is an excellent choice for any Internet site that entices a lot of visitors, as it will make it amazingly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached memory caching system with all Linux shared website hosting packages that we are offering. It’s available as an optional upgrade, which you can order with just a couple of clicks of the mouse via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first part concerns the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more content will be cached, which may be a really good idea for traffic-heavy websites with large-size databases and a lot of visitors. In this way, you can improve the loading speed of every script-based Internet site hosted on our servers without efforts.
