Memcached is a widespread object caching platform, which can improve the speed and the performance of your sites significantly in case they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so when a visitor searches for a particular product on your Internet site, for example, the database will not have to be accessed to show the results and the entire operation will be completed notably quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, as every time a particular page is accessed, the app sends a request to its database to fetch the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your site open considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a hosting account with our company, you can add the Memcached distributed memory object caching system to your shared web hosting plan with just a few mouse clicks via your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available momentarily and, since the needed extension is pre-installed on our advanced cloud website hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more flexibility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many sites will use Memcached) and to the amount of memory that Memcached will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order memory as many times as you wish. Logically, the more memory Memcached is permitted to use, the more content it will cache, so if you manage a resource-absorbing website with a lot of data, you may require more memory so as to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can give you.
