Memcached is a distributed memory caching system, which has been gaining in popularity lately because of its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can boost the performance of your Internet site and reduce the generated server load drastically. Anytime a web page on an application-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what info should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, as the platform has already cached all the content that should appear on a specific web page. In case any data is edited, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the users will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal solution for any website that lures lots of visitors, since it will make it astonishingly fast and will improve the user experience.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached comes as an upgrade with each and every cloud hosting account that we are offering and in case you wish to use it for any script-powered Internet site that you host on our avant-garde cloud web hosting platform, you will be able to activate it in a couple of easy steps through your Hepsia Control Panel. In the meantime, you’ll get the option to upgrade two separate things – the number of instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the Internet sites that can use the Memcached object caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several websites, you can order a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use to cache information, so for plenty of sites (or for one popular site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers will load blazing-fast.
