Memcached is a widespread distributed memory caching platform, which can improve the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites considerably if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a client conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole procedure will be executed considerably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for web stores, as anytime a particular web page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open significantly faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is changed, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any outdated info.

Memcached in Website Hosting

If you host script-driven websites in a website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your hosting package with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available instantly and, since the extension needed for it is already installed on our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform, you can start using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is permitted to use, the more data it will cache, so in case you’ve got a traffic-intensive site with lots of data, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
