Memcached is a content caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that’s using it, which can accelerate the performance of your website and lessen the generated load greatly. Every time a page on an app-powered website is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, as the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a particular web page. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. Memcached is a perfect choice for every site that lures a lot of visitors, since it will make it load faster and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each shared web hosting account that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-driven website that you host on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you will be able to order it in a couple of simple steps through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. In the meantime, you will be given the option to upgrade two different features – the number of instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached memory caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that Memcached will be permitted to use to cache data, so for lots of websites (or for one single busy site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With the Memcached caching system, every script-driven site hosted on our servers will open incredibly fast.
