Memcached is a distributed memory caching platform, which has been gaining popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache calls and responses between a database and the app that uses it, which can enhance the performance of your site and lessen the created server load considerably. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be displayed on a specific page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the users will never see outdated content. The Memcached platform is a perfect solution for every website that entices plenty of viewers, as it will make it faster than the blink of an eye and will enhance the overall user experience.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

The Memcached data caching system is offered as an upgrade with each Linux shared website hosting package offered by us and you will be able to begin using it as soon as you add it, as the extension that it needs in order to run properly is already available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every shared web hosting plan and a brand new Control Panel section where you can administer Memcached will show up. The upgrade is separated into two parts – the number of instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the Internet sites which can use the Memcached caching system, whereas the second one, which is available in increments of 16 megabytes, defines the maximum size of the content that can be cached by the system. A heavy-traffic Internet site with a large-size database may require more memory to take an even bigger advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you’d like to upgrade this feature, you will be able to do it at any given moment with several clicks of the mouse.
