Memcached is a commonly used object caching system, which can enhance the speed and the overall performance of your websites drastically in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are delivered, so if a client searches for some product on your website, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be executed notably quicker. That goes for all types of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as anytime a specific page is opened, the app sends a query to its database to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load noticeably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached replies will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

Memcached is offered as an upgrade with each cloud hosting account that we’re offering and if you’d like to use it for any script-based site that you host on our leading-edge cloud platform, you’ll be able to enable it in a couple of easy steps via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be given the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the system memory. The first one is related to the number of the sites that can use the Memcached content caching system simultaneously, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a handful of instances. The second one has to do with the total amount of memory that Memcached will be able to use in order to cache info, so for numerous websites (or for one popular site), you should order more memory for improved performance. The memory is available in increments of 16 MB and more memory can be ordered at any moment. With Memcached, every script-driven site hosted on our servers will load lightning-fast.
