Find out what Memcached is and precisely why many people use it for their databases.
Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining popularity in recent years due to its effectiveness. It is used to cache calls and replies between a database and the app that’s using it, which can improve the performance of your website and lessen the produced server load tremendously. Anytime a web page on an app-driven website is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then extracts it. With Memcached, these procedures are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a specific page. When any data is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the site visitors will never see out-of-date content. The platform is an ideal option for any Internet site that lures a lot of visitors, since it will speed it up and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Shared Hosting
You can use the Memcached object caching system with all shared hosting
offered by us. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can add with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first one determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have added, the more data will be cached, which may be a quite good idea for traffic-intensive sites with very large databases and a lot of simultaneous visitors. In this way, you can enhance the overall performance of every script-based Internet site hosted on our cloud servers with ease.
