Memcached is a famous distributed memory caching system, which can improve the loading speed and the performance of your websites considerably in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the API/database and the responses that are returned, so if a user conducts a search for a given product on your website, for example, the database won’t have to be accessed to return the results and the entire procedure will be executed much quicker. That goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for e-stores, as every time a given web page is opened, the application sends a query to its database to fetch 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any data in the database is updated, the cached responses will also be updated, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

You can make use of the Memcached object caching system with all Linux cloud hosting offered by us. It’s offered as an upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks via your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. It needs a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud platform, so you can start using the Memcached caching system as soon as you add it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will offer you more freedom depending on the websites that you wish to use it for. The first one shows the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the so-called ‘instances’, while the second one refers to the system memory, in other words – 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 ordered, the more data will be cached, which may be a rather good idea for regularly visited websites with very large databases and many visitors. Thus, you can supercharge the speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers effortlessly.
