Memcached is a widespread memory caching system, which can increase the speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites greatly if they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the replies that are delivered, so when a visitor searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to display the results and the entire operation will be executed much faster. This is valid for all sorts of database-powered applications and not only for Internet shops, since anytime a given page is accessed, the application sends a query to its database to fetch the content that should be displayed. With Memcached, not only will your site load considerably faster, but it will also generate much less load. If any content in the database is edited, the cached responses will also be ‘refreshed’, so the website visitors won’t see any out-of-date information.

Memcached in Cloud Web Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached data caching system with all Linux cloud web hosting that we offer. It’s available as an upgrade, which you can acquire with only a couple of mouse clicks through your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. It needs an extension, which is already installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system the moment you order it. The upgrade is divided into two parts, which will offer you more versatility depending on the Internet sites that you would like to use it for. The first part specifies the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘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 memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have added, the more content will be cached, which may be a pretty good idea for high-traffic websites with very large databases and numerous simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can enhance the speed of any script-driven website hosted on our cloud servers with ease.
