Memcached is a widely used object caching platform, which can boost the loading speed and the overall performance of your Internet sites tremendously in case they use a database or an API. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the responses that are returned, so when a customer searches for a given product on your website, for instance, the database won’t have to be accessed to show the results and the whole task will be executed considerably quicker. This goes for all kinds of database-powered applications and not only for online shopping portals, since every time a specific 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 website open much faster, but it will also produce much less server load. If any data in the database is updated, the cached replies will also be ‘refreshed’, so the site visitors will not see any outdated information.

Memcached in Shared Website Hosting

Memcached is offered as an optional upgrade with each shared website hosting package that we offer and in case you’d like to use it for any script-powered site that you host on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform, you’ll be able to order it in a couple of simple steps via your Hepsia Control Panel. During the process, you’ll be offered the option to upgrade two separate things – the instances and the memory. The first one has to do with the number of the sites that can use the Memcached data caching system at the same time, so if you need it for several sites, you can get a number of instances. The second one refers to the total amount of memory that the system will be permitted to use to cache information, so for plenty of websites (or for one single resource-requiring site), you may want to get more memory for better performance. The memory is offered in increments of 16 megabytes and more memory can be ordered every time you need it. With the Memcached caching system, every script-based website hosted on our servers will open lightning-fast.
