Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years because of its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated load immensely. Anytime a webpage on an app-powered website is opened, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached the content that should show up on a particular webpage. In case any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing outdated content. The platform is an excellent option for every Internet site that has lots of viewers, as it will make it ultra-fast and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Web Hosting
Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each web hosting account that we are offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-based website that you host on our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform, you will be able to order it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the memory. The first one refers to the number of the websites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several Internet sites, you can order a handful of instances. The second one refers to the maximum amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for a lot of websites (or for one busy site), you’d better get more memory for improved performance. The memory comes in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any point. With Memcached, any script-based Internet site hosted on our servers will load extra-fast.
