Memcached is a popular caching system, which can increase the speed and the performance of your Internet sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a visitor conducts a search for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire task will be performed much faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven apps and not only for e-shops, as every time a specific page is opened, the app 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 load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux shared services that we’re offering. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of mouse clicks via your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the Internet sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the memory, in other words – to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve got, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for popular sites with large-sized databases and a lot of visitors. In this way, you can enhance the loading speed of every script-powered website hosted on our cloud servers with no effort.
