Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and replies between a database and the app that is using it, which can improve the performance of your Internet site and lessen the generated load significantly. Anytime a page on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the app connects to the database and "asks" what info should be shown, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should show up on a certain page. If any data is updated, the Memcached content is ‘refreshed’ too, so the site visitors will never see outdated data. Memcached is a perfect option for any Internet site that attracts plenty of viewers, as it will make it extra-fast and will enhance the user experience.

Memcached in Shared Web Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a shared web hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your hosting plan with only a few clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the needed PHP extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (in other words – how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you manage a traffic-consuming site with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
