Memcached is a commonly used caching platform, which can enhance the loading speed and the overall performance of your websites tremendously if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor conducts a search for a given product on your site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be performed noticeably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for online shops, since anytime a page is accessed, the app sends a database query to get the data that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website open noticeably faster, but it will also create much less server load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be updated, so the website visitors will not see any old info.

Memcached in Hosting

You can take advantage of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux hosting offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can order with just a few mouse clicks from your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system once you order it. The upgrade is subdivided into two parts, which will give you more versatility depending on the websites that you’d like to use it for. The first part defines the number of the websites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one is related to the memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you’ve added, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for heavy-traffic sites with large-size databases and many users. In this way, you can boost the performance of every script-based website hosted on our servers without any efforts.
