Memcached is a caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity lately owing to its effectiveness. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can accelerate the overall performance of your site and lessen the created load drastically. Anytime a web page on an app-driven site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular web page. In case any data is modified, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ as well, so the website visitors will never end up seeing old data. The Memcached platform is an ideal solution for any site that draws plenty of viewers, as it will make it incredibly fast and will improve the overall user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can make use of Memcached with all shared hosting offered by our company. It’s offered as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is already installed on our cloud website hosting platform, so you can start using Memcached once you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one concerns the number of the Internet sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the system memory, in other words – to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a really good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and numerous users. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of any script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
