Memcached is a commonly used content caching platform, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your sites substantially if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor searches for a particular product on your site, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be performed noticeably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for shopping portals, as every time 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 website load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Hosting

Memcached is available as an optional upgrade with each and every hosting plan that we offer and in case you would like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our avant-garde cloud platform, you will be able to enable it in several easy steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you will be given the option to upgrade two separate features – the instances and the memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached distributed memory object caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be allowed to use to cache data, so for plenty of websites (or for one single large-sized site), you may want to order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With Memcached, each script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers will open amazingly fast.
