Memcached is a commonly used object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites greatly in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so if somebody searches for some product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be executed notably faster. That goes for all types of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, as every time a specific page is visited, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load significantly faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

When you host script-powered sites in a cloud hosting account with us, you can add the Memcached data caching system to your shared web hosting package with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the necessary PHP extension is pre-installed on our avant-garde cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so if you manage a high-traffic website with lots of data, you may need more memory so as to be able to make full use of the power that Memcached can offer you.
