Memcached is a commonly used caching system, which can boost the loading speed and the performance of your sites 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 if someone searches for a certain product on your Internet site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole operation will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all types of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, as every time a web page is opened, the application sends a request to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Hosting

If you host script-powered websites in a hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached memory caching system to your shared hosting package with just a few clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our cutting-edge cloud web 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 websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory as many times as you need. Logically, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a larger site with a lot of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
