Memcached is a famous caching platform, which can boost the speed and the overall performance of your sites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when a customer conducts a search for some product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the whole operation will be performed notably quicker. That goes for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for web shops, since anytime a particular web page is visited, the application sends a database query to get the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any out-of-date info.

Memcached in Cloud Website Hosting

You can use the Memcached data caching system with all cloud website hosting plans that we offer. It is available as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a few mouse clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using Memcached once you add it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one defines the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, while the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have ordered, the more content will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for high-demand websites with very large databases and lots of concurrent visitors. In this way, you can accelerate the loading speed of every script-driven website hosted on our servers with ease.
