Memcached is a popular distributed memory object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the overall performance of your websites immensely if they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor searches for a particular product on your site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be performed notably faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered apps and not only for web stores, since anytime a particular web page is opened, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load considerably faster, but it will also create much less load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

If you host script-driven sites in a cloud website hosting account with us, you will be able to add the Memcached distributed memory caching system to your web hosting package with just a few clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the extension needed for it is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the memory that Memcached will use. The latter is offered in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you want. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you’ve got a popular site with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
