What exactly is Memcached? What is the reason for its expanding recognition among people who manage databases?
Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining popularity lately thanks to its efficiency. It’s used to cache calls and responses between a database and the application that is using it, which can increase the overall performance of your Internet site and lessen the created load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an application-powered Internet site is opened, the app connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then fetches it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should appear on a particular webpage. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated too, so the visitors will never end up seeing out-of-date content. The platform is a perfect choice for any site that entices many viewers, as it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will enhance the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting
The Memcached distributed memory caching system is available as an optional upgrade with every cloud website hosting plan
that we are offering and you can begin using it as soon as you enable it, since the extension that it needs so as to function correctly is already available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can request the upgrade through the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with every shared hosting plan and a brand-new section where you can manage Memcached will show up. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the instances and the system memory, so as to give you more freedom. The first one refers to the number of the sites that can use Memcached, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, determines the maximum size of the content that the system can cache. A traffic-intensive site with a large database may need more memory to take an even greater advantage of the Memcached caching system, so in case you want to upgrade this service, you’ll be able to do it at any given time with a couple of clicks.
