Memcached is a popular object caching system, which can enhance the loading speed and the performance of your sites immensely in case they use a database or an API. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the responses that are delivered, so if a customer conducts a search for some product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire task will be performed significantly faster. This is valid for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shops, as every time a particular page is accessed, the app connects to its database to fetch the data that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the visitors won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

If you host script-powered sites in a cloud web hosting account with our company, you’ll be able to add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your web hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the necessary extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it right away. To give you more versatility, we offer two separate upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many Internet sites will use Memcached) and to the memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter is available in increments of 16 MB and you can order memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory Memcached is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so if you have a high-traffic website with lots of content, you may require more memory in order to be able to take advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
