Memcached is a memory caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can boost the overall performance of your site and decrease the produced load drastically. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a specific webpage. In case any content is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal solution for every Internet site that draws numerous viewers, since it will make it load faster and will enhance the overall user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
The Memcached content caching system comes as an optional upgrade with each and every Linux cloud website hosting package that we’re offering and you’ll be able to start using it the moment you add it, since the extension that it needs so as to work correctly is already available on our innovative cloud website hosting platform. You can order the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which is included with each hosting package and a brand new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts – the instances and the memory, so as to give you more versatility. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that the system can cache. A popular website with a very large database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you wish to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any given time with a few clicks of the mouse.
