Memcached is a popular data caching platform, which can increase the loading speed and the overall performance of your sites greatly in case they use an API or a database. This is achieved by caching the requests to the database/API and the replies that are returned, so when somebody searches for some product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the entire task will be carried out much faster. That goes for all kinds of database-driven applications and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a specific web page is opened, the app connects to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your website load much faster, but it will also generate much less server load. If any data in the database is modified, the cached replies will also be updated, so the users won’t see any old info.

Memcached in Shared Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached distributed memory object caching system with all shared plans that we’re offering. It is offered as an optional upgrade, which you can obtain with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It requires an extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can begin using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the sites that you would like to use it for. The first part determines the number of the sites that will use the Memcached caching system, or the so-called ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content the system will be able to cache. You can add more system memory in increments of 16 megabytes and the more memory you have ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for traffic-intensive websites with large-sized databases and plenty of concurrent visitors. Thus, you can boost the performance of any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers without any efforts.
